It might be. A cast in general (especially an old-style cast) is almost
always more dangerous than !!(x), though. The reason it might be a matter of
taste in this case is that BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT does not permit runtime
behavior, so the only expressions must be integral constant expressions
anyway... so it may be a wash.
