I've got a real problem with the BOOST_MSVC6_MEMBER_TEMPLATES macro. It is
really confusing because it appears to apply only to the Microsoft
compiler, when in fact it applies to many compilers. Not to mention that
it has to live forever, while most of our macros can be honorably retired
in a few years as the bugs they represent fade into ancient history.

Maybe I'm missing something.
