While I agree with all of this in general, I don't think Daryle's problems
in this case would be cured by upgrading the compiler. This is a systems
My advice to Daryle:

    1. For everybody's sake, upgrade! ;-)
    2. If you can't upgrade, support CWPro5.3 for boost yourself. That means
posting fixes as diffs to the existing boost source, and limiting fixes to
small changes that don't substantially obscure the existing code so that
there is less work for other maintainers.
    3. If you can't support CWPro5.3, don't post problem reports relating to
unsupported compilers. As I've said, fixes are fine.
    4. See my other post on the regression tests.
