From reading the original ticket for this
<https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/4594>.. It doesn't sound like
the issue is fully resolved. Also looking at the current state, and
logs, of boost/exception/* it looks like there's a considerable number
of other changes after the above. Which doesn't lead me to believe this
is actually tested enough in isolation to just merge, instead of merging
the whole of the exception changes.
So, sorry, no. It would be better/safer to wait for early in the next
release cycle and merge all the exception library changes to release.
