Well, actually, windows.h fails to compile with -Za. So using the flag to get
any Boost code working would be rather counterproductive, as it would indeed
be a headache getting it to work in Windows programs. :)

(apparently there is some __inline and __asm stuff in winnt.h among other
things; perhaps there is a way to shut those off with defines, obviously at
the cost of some performance)

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail
in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this?
And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive
them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
