The commit in question is

 From API change view it conditionally removes a function from the
detail namespace with no effect for the upcoming release.
In the case BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS is defined it replaces an include of
"boost/exception_ptr.hpp" with a forward declaration of that class.
 From what I understood "boost/exception_ptr.hpp" cannot be included
when BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS is defined or compilation will fail.

Hence I conclude that this is a pure bugfix (things compile that did not
before) with no API or breaking change. As bugfix commits are still
allowed according to the review schedule this is fine.

Or am I missing anything?
