That's not even true in 'C'. The concept of a "machine word" never appears
in either of the standards.
Your postings have consistently shown a disregard for things we care about
here at Boost: portability, standards conformance, and avoiding undefined
behavior. Please get with the program**!

IMO there's little chance of Boost accepting a library which relies heavily
on things like reinterpret_cast<> (which is completely
implementation-dependent) and other nonportable "hacks"; continuing to push
one here just wastes bandwidth.
