#5178: boost::exception uses invalid C++ code

 boost::exception uses a

 std::map<type_info_, shared_ptr<error_info_base> > in
 error_info_container_impl. This map is copied in clone(). However,
 type_info_ contains a member which is a reference, so it is not copyable.

 The standard says that you can only copy a std::map<T,U> if both T and U
 are copyable. Some standard libraries don't make use of this requirement,
 but libc++ does.

 The easiest fix to this would be to make type_info_ take it's reference
 member instead by pointer, and make it copyable.

 Before I prepare a full patch, I wondered if anyone had any comments, as
 this is a fairly big change to boost::exception
