Yes! Did you test with STLPort? boost/detail/iterator.hpp is making the
assumption that they're mutually exclusive.
I can work around it for this one file, but what could the possible
justification be for enabling BOOST_MSVC_STD_ITERATOR with STLPort? It's
supposed to mean

    "Microsoft's broken version of std::iterator is being used. This
implies that std::iterator takes no more than two template parameters, and
that std::reverse_iterator takes at least two template parameters."

And that's clearly false with STLPort.
