Is there any chance that the error behaviour code be configurable. StaticVector
looks ideal for embedded environments, BUT commonly exceptions are disabled in
such an environment. It would be nice to have asserts instead of exceptions
available in all cases, so that a programmer can check for room on a push_back
prior to calling it. A specific StaticVector macro would suffice for those that
need it.

(There may also need to be changes for the template specialization of <T,0> as
well, with respect to throwing exceptions.)

As an aside the exceptions should/could be thrown using the
BOOST_THROW_EXCEPTION macro, to support the other boost specific exception
behaviour support. (At least it is something like that.)
