Some feedback: I skimmed this newsgroup going back a few months, and
saw a few Comeau C++ discussions I wasn't clear about, and don't know
if they are still of significance. On the chance that they are, if I may:
* --long_long ... looked like something may have been set up wrong.
  If this is still an issue, we can look at it anew so I can understand
  it better.
* __int64: I wasn't sure what the issue was here
* As of 4.3.0, __NO_LONG_LONG is set if --long_long is not requested
* Some discussion occurred about windows.h, but I'm not sure why that
  has any significance to Boost (after all, Boost runs on non-Windows
* Most all versions of 4.3.0 beta were setting _MSC_VER to 1, in all modes.
  Giovanni pointed this out, since previously this was only done in
  strict_mode. This was added as an interim crutch while adding the other
  new backends that are now supported, and setting _MSC_VER to 1 in
  non-strict mode has now been removed, after verifying that all out tests
  are able to run w/o it.
