Yes, some time ago I built a memory allocation tracker to find a
resource leak in a very large codebase. I spent a lot of time figuring
out how to get a stack trace programmatically which I could map to each
allocation. Having something like this would have been great.

For my use case, I needed to be able to print the stack trace. I also
had to come up with a way to uniquely identify each stack trace. i.e.
key comparable. Perhaps hashable would be useful too.
Thanks for coming up with this. I look forward to seeing it added to boost.
