Yes, in my opinion not acceptable because this header is included by
boost/throw_exception.hpp, which in turn is typically included by any
Boost library that throws.

Going public might not be such a bad idea but I decided to just ifdef
for MSVC 7.1. Other poorly-conforming compilers aren't compatible with
Boost Exception anyway so this should be OK.

Revision 59837 should be fine, thanks for reporting this regression.
