As the change is a breaking change I would like to update all the
libraries at once. I have identified the following dependent libraries:
asio, filesystem, thread. Are there other libraries?
Should I introduce the change conditionally so that the users could
comeback to the preceding semantics?
I was thinking on defining a new BOOST_SYSTEM_NOEXCEPT that the users
will use instead of BOOST_NOEXCEPT. The user could define
BOOST_SYSTEM_NOEXCEPT as nothing to get the old semantic.
Of course as the needed change in the user code is minor, we could also
choose the drastic way and add a breaking change respect to the
preceding version. Beman up to you to decide.
