std::string get_file_name();
throw foo() << boost::errinfo_file_name(get_file_name());

All I was saying is that if op<< throws std::bad_alloc, this is the
same as getting std::bad_alloc from the get_file_name() function or
from the std::string copy constructor, or even from the runtime if it
runs out of memory trying to throw (the already successfully
initialized with error infos and all) foo. You shouldn't worry about
this stuff, just collect your exception_ptrs in a std::vector then add
it to the exception at the point of the throw.
