The rationale is that boost/throw_exception.hpp started off at least as
a workaround for compilers with exception handling turned off (and is
still required for such), the fact that it pulls in one header from
Boost.Exception as well is a side effect, but a not-unhappy one in that
it stops endless "why do I need to depend on Boost.Exception"
discussions, if that one header shift to Config.
