It seems the way program_options deals with validation errors was
changed in 1.42.
Constructor of validation_error now takes kind_t and option name and
value. Before 1.42 it was possible to specify what exactly was wrong
with the option value in the constructor of validation_error. Now I
see no options but to subclass validation_error. Was this change
Also, documentation need to be fixed to reflect these changes. More
precisely, the following line in "Custom Validators" section will lead
to compilation error:
> throw validation_error("invalid value");
