Doesn't work :(

Take a very simple test program:

template<typename Allocator, typename T>
struct foo {
  typedef Allocator::template rebind<T> new_alloc; // #1
  typedef typename new_alloc::other allocator_type;

MSVC tries to look up "rebind" for some reason, and chokes. So I try to fake
a rebind, assuming it will fix things later:

template<typename T> struct rebind { struct other {}; };

Now I get an internal compiler error at the line marked #1.

All this occurs before it's even tried to instantiate anything :(
