Sorry, my mistake.

It wasn't BOOST_THROW_EXCEPTION. It was boost::throw_exception whose
semantics were changed in an unanticipated and surprising way. It seems
to me that it might be that this was being proposed again. Maybe my
concerns are overblown as those who got burned the first time by this
policy have already eliminated dependency on boost::throw_exception.
