boost::enable_current_exception enables the
boost::current_exception/boost::exception_ptr support by returning an
object that derives from boost::exception *and* the type of the passed


throw boost::enable_current_exception(my_exception());

satisfies the requirement for deriving from boost::exception without
requiring my_exception to derive from boost::exception.
