See and replies.

That thread discussed the possibility of the C++03 version using
throw() for MSVC and __attribute__((nothrow)) for GCC.

The uses I'm making of it are for cases where there is nothing in the
current code, and the docs say "Throws: Nothing".

I guess we could provide yet another form that handled the
BOOST_NOEXCEPT_OR_EMPTY_THROWS case, but I'm not greatly interested in
working that one out. If someone else wants to take that on, fine.
Hopefully a shorter name could be found. Maybe BOOST_NEVER_THROWS.
