Yes, it is. For those of us stuck with VC++ it's nice to know that
MS is at least trying to reach the standard, even if they are going
to fall so short with the next version that it leaves me seeing red.

In the CVS archives.

To prevent you from asking the same stupid question I did, the files
you want to grab (if you can't just grab all of them, for instance
you must grab them using the nearly useless CVSweb interface like I
did) are in boost\boost\detail in the files ob_call_traits.hpp,
ob_compressed_pair.hpp, ob_type_traits.hpp and type_traits.hpp.
