That's not true.
Most people have done the required work to make their libraries work
correctly without exceptions.
It's simple, all you have to do is use BOOST_THROW_EXCEPTION instead of
Then you can globally disable exceptions and define your own function
that gets called instead.
Of course this is a bit limited, as you cannot easily do proper error
management, but most of the time it is good enough.
