The semantics of BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS have not changed.

boost::throw_exception was altered with the acceptance of Boost Exception,
to automatically make Boost exceptions derive from boost::exception. This
is an empty shell that enables the Boost Exception functionality. Robert
has no use for that functionality and sees the empty shell as overhead.
