Yes, and as I pointed out in the context of BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(), it isn't
just concept checking. There are several program correctness aids,
particularly those that happen at compile rather than run time, that
"straddle the library/compiler boundary" and could be much better done with
compiler support. But meanwhile, we do the best we can. Macros live on...
