I mean "simple" as in "keep it simple." boost/assert.hpp is intended to be
an infrastructure component, not "a library."

What do you mean by "adding the __func__"?

No, I didn't mean that. Portable stack-tracing (and profiling) by annotation
_is_ useful, and it's not complex to use. It's just that it is a separate
component, orthogonal to BOOST_ASSERT.
