The happy path includes everything that happens when there is no exception
thrown, not only what happens at the try...catch, that's what I meant.

A benchmark can be added, sure. Here's the initialization code generated by
leaf::try_catch that deals with a context that has a struct e_info { int
value; }:

mov dword ptr [rsp + 8], 0
mov rax, qword ptr fs:[0]
lea rax, [rax + boost::leaf::leaf_detail::slot<e_info>*&
mov qword ptr [rsp + 16], rax
mov rax, qword ptr fs:[boost::leaf::leaf_detail::slot<e_info>*&
mov qword ptr [rsp + 24], rax
lea rax, [rsp + 8]
mov qword ptr fs:[boost::leaf::leaf_detail::slot<e_info>*&
boost::leaf::leaf_detail::tl_slot_ptr<e_info>()::s_at_TPOFF], rax

This initialization does not depend on the type of ::value. The long gnarly
names are TLS offset constants.
