Thanks for the report. It really motivates developers to know people are
using their libraries.

We've gotten so tired of the lack of limits for some compilers that in the
next release (due today or tomorrow) there will be a <boost/limits.hpp>
file. It will just forward to <limits> on systems that have one, but will
otherwise supply a (hopefully standards conforming) limits header.
