This was put in to handle the configuration of Metorwerks (and any other
compiler that can similate MSVC) to act like MSVC. But currently only the
metrowerks toolset implements this. And yes it seems a bit strange to add
msvc-sync/async as we try to put only cross-toolset options in the global

So yes, I would suggest you put a feature in your toolset to select the
sync/async exceptions.
