Yes, such a macro is needed
Also, it turns out that the ability to provide a default template
parameter for function templates markedly clarifies code using
enable_if. (I learned this Howard Hinnant, but I think he may have
gotten the idea from Peter Dimov.)
Thus we need a BOOST_NO_DEFAULT_TEMPLATE_ARGUMENT_FOR_FUNCTION_TEMPLATE.
Or maybe BOOST_NO_FUNCTION_TEMPLATE_DEFAULT_PARAMETER. (or is the
correct term "argument"? Need to look that up.
I'm overloaded. If you'd like to submit a patch, that would be great.
