I notice that the LEAF documentation comes with benchmarks comparing
leaf::result to other return-based error handling systems. That's good.

But I also notice that it doesn't come with benchmarks comparing
exception-based LEAF with other exception-based error handling systems
like Boost.Exception. Nor does it come with benchmarks comparing
leaf::result with leaf::exception. That's less good.

I am currently using Boost.Exception, and I am satisfied with its
functionality, but I am worried about its performance cost. LEAF claims
to be a faster functional replacement for Boost.Exception, and is for
this reason seems worth investigating. However, this claim does not
appear to be backed up by any hard numbers.
