Well... I'm probably going to get flamed for the suggestion... But as
the issue is supporting non-complient compilers until they become
compliant, we *could* set up a include directory of these hacks in
something like:


This allows those of us who have trouble with one platform or another to
share our hack fixes without having to #define the actual boost header
files to death with stuff that we would all rather do without and hope
that the compiler maintainers finally get around to fixing...

If this is amenable to people I would suggest a naming convention that
somehow combines the OS and the specific compiler...
