A lot, most of them useless. I use the following technique to get around

#if defined(_MSC_VER) && !defined(__ICL)
#pragma warning(disable: 4786) // identifier truncated in debug info
#pragma warning(disable: 4710) // function not inlined
#pragma warning(disable: 4711) // function selected for automatic inline
#pragma warning(disable: 4514) // unreferenced inline removed
#pragma warning(disable: 4800) // conversion from int/void* to bool

#ifdef _MSC_VER
#pragma warning(push, 3)

#include <cstdlib>
#include <string>
#include <utility>

#ifdef _MSC_VER
#pragma warning(pop)

(That's the beginning of my version of test-any.cpp.)

All this is relevant only if you use warning level 4. I always do.

Yes, I do have the exception handling support enabled. :-))

A question, why the <cstdlib>? Note that MSVC's <c*> headers don't put
identifiers in std.

Also, test-any.cpp relies on an indirect #include <typeinfo> from any.hpp;
not a major problem, just a nit.

I have never encountered a version/SP where this was necessary. Either you
have 5.0 pre-SP3 and member templates are hopelessly broken, or 5.0sp3/6.0,
where they work without the template<>.

I may have missed a SP where this weren't the case, though... What version
do you have in mind?

Oh, and yes, I think that any should be accepted into boost. :-))
