Technically, you can merge the files, but to keep the code structure
more clear I'd still keep them separate. I.e. it isn't obvious that I
would find boost::exception definition in throw_exception.hpp.

Also, exception/exception.hpp is now conditionally included into
throw_exception.hpp, but its contents are available unconditionally.
It is now possible to disable Boost.Exception use in throw_exception()
but still be able to use Boost.Exception.
