Firstly thanks to all for the detailed discussion. Bringing it back
to the review of Stacktrace which this is (and not of Exception,
another discussion thread would suit that), I am seeing the following
options proposed for Stacktrace:

Option 1: That Stacktrace implement a macro like
BOOST_THROW_EXCEPTION() but with muxed in stacktrace.

Option 2: That Stacktrace optionally hook some compile time hook in
Boost.Exception to mux in stacktrace.

Option 3: That Stacktrace optionally hook some runtime hook in
Boost.Exception to mux in stacktrace.

Implied in all the above is that the exception type stacktrace mux in
framework as described in the current Stacktrace docs is considered
bad form and should be deleted?

Can people interested vote on one of the options above, or propose
their own option, and say whether they want the documented mux in
mechanism removed or not?
