Did you

Strange, I don't beleive that fixed it for me. But it does eliminate
the code when NDEBUG is defined, so I'll just use that, since that
avoids the comman in macro problem. Not a big deal. Thanks.

Another problem... When I do a BOOST_CLASS_REQUIRES for a concept
that needs it's namespace explicitly mentioned, I get compile errors
(g++ 2.95 and g++ 2.96). Is this the known compiler problem that
prevents BOOST_CLASS_REQUIRES from getting more frequent use? The
error messages look like...
DomainInfo.h:84: parse error before `::'
DomainInfo.h:84: parse error before `::'
DomainInfo.h:84: missing ';' before right brace
DomainInfo.h:84: syntax error before `::'

Also, a stylistic question... Is it considered good style to do
something like template<class T> struct FooConcept { void
constraints() { function_requires< BarConcept<typename T::return_type>
>(); }; };? Even if nested those several deep? They can result in
long error messages, but most of the lines are easy to skip over. If
that's considered ok, then I have a work around to the above problem.
