Sorry, I've only been glossing over this discussion. Can someone please
clarify how BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS has changed, what specific change Robert
(and possibly others) find troubling, and what practical consequences this
has had or presently has? Ditto for boost::throw_exception.

(For the record, I've glanced at the blurbs on BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS within
Boost.Config and Boost.Exception and it's difficult for me to parse what
effect their differences have in practice, and it sounds like others have a
good idea what the problem seems to be.)
