I'm worried that moving this header outside of the Exception library
will lead to dependencies being injected at a later time. A couple of
headers in Boost Exception are included by any library that throws
exceptions, and I have been *very* aggressive in keeping dependencies
out of there. Yes, I consider even config.hpp way too heavy to be
included by these important headers.

These are the two headers in question (there may be more I'm not 100%
sure). I think that they should remain where they are, precisely
because of their global nature. I do not think that it is a good idea
to obfuscate this fact, by moving them into a subdirectory.
