This implies that `exception` is of type `boost::exception_ptr`.

This is not an exception type, it's an opaque pointer that refers to an
exception. The only thing you can do with this pointer is tell it to rethrow
the exception it refers to. So:

    boost::rethrow_exception( exception );
catch( std::exception const& x )
    const int* p = boost::get_error_info<boost::throw_line>(x);
    // use p here
