I sincerely hope that we wouldn't have to keep incrementing it.
However, having observed the progress of compiler quality for a
couple of years, I suppose you are right.

I think that preprocessor bugs should go into the Boost.Config
library. This has been discussed before. The problem is that I
haven't had the extra time to create and submit the stuff required
for Boost.Config. And, of course, since there was no pressing reason
to do so, I delayed it...

I'll remove the version number test from the #if lines as an
immediate "fix". This should only take a minute or two. I'll then
construct and submit tests to reveal the bugs for Boost.Config.
