better control over error-handling in Accumulators

Description

Ticket #2671 describes a scenario where accumulators causes an integral overflow. The simple solution there is to use doubles, but the larger issue is how to accommodate both fast, unchecked integral arithmetic and slower checked arithmetic. This is an open design issue, and it probably makes sense to come up with a uniform solution across all math-related libraries in Boost.
