Unfortunately, I think not.
I've tried before to use various parts of mpl with BCB, and even when I got
around the errors I started to get spourious "internal compiler error" in
totaly unrelated, trivial and correct code that compiled OK without mpl. I'm
conviced that some metaprogramming techniques really trashes the parser
internally, since I found this behaviour with other template-heavy code.

Looks like we must wait for BCB 6...
