I've qualified (hopefully all) uses of BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT with

Hm... I should certainly work around (missing) partial
specialization, but I can't see how to non-clumsily work
around the fact that std::numeric_limits<> doesn't
have compile-time constants on some platforms, e.g. VC7.

Ok, I've checked in a partial solution using type_traits
for that.
