Aha! That makes sense. Then I suggest we do this:
#if (defined(_MSC_VER) && (_MSC_VER <= 1300)) && ((!defined(_CPP_LIB_VER) &&
defined(_YVALS)) || (defined(_CPPLIB_VER) && (_CPPLIB_VER < 306)))

as _YVALS is defined on MSVC 6.

Sounds like a good idea, but adding a config macro is a "global operation",
while changing this faulty test is a very localized change. For now, I think
we should concentrate on getting this right, preferably before 1_29_0 is
