Thank you for the review!

I'd like to discuss a proposed changes. Thing that I'm worried about:
* replacing class `stacktrace` with vector<void*> will definitely
break the most common use case std::cout << get_stacktrace(); as it's
not a good idea to overload ostream operator for vector of void
* addr2line and forking is not nice. Is linking with a GPL licensed
code an acceptable alternative?
* removing `basic_stacktrace` will definitely remove all the
possibilities for optimization of caching COM/parsed DWARF. This is a
quick win that later may turn into big troubles.

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
