While we can feel your pain, we cannot solve political issues inside
your company.

No exceptions means no STL, two phase construction for everything,
etc. If I had to go back to writing code like that, I wouldn't much
like C++ either.

Even if we magically changed all of Boost, would these guys commit to
using it? I suspect exceptions are but one in a whole litany of
emotional, not technical arguments.
