While I haven't looked at this submission, if this hasn't changed since
Bill's last submission, I have big problems with this too. It seems to me
that using a macro could very easily lead to violations of the ODR. Plus,
it just isn't very C++-ish :).

(Sorry if this is a different issue in this submission)
