This could be done, however I need some use case examples for that.
I've only faced cases when the stacktrace is printed near the what()
usage of an exception. And that could be done only via rethrowing an

void handle_eptr(std::exception_ptr eptr) {
    try {
    } catch(const std::exception& e) {
        std::cout << "Caught exception \"" << e.what() << "\"\n" <<
