 That's a bad patch. It breaks compilation with exceptions off. It does not
 add tests for new feature and does not update the docs.

 It is also much worse than an already applied
 [ to develop branch

 ```try {} catch(...){}``` is not what was requested by users.
 `boost::numeric::converter` was the main problem! Without fixing it a
 patch could be written in 10 minutes, but that would be a patch for
 outward appearances, does not really resolving the issue.
