>No, I just meant that a falsely succeeding test is very _unlucky_.
Yeah. The reason why I said it was a lucky case is that I was thinking
to real code, not to the test: in real code where you want
#if BOOST_WORKAROUND(MACRO, >0)
to be equivalent to
#if defined(MACRO) && (MACRO >0)
you want the condition to be false when MACRO is not defined, which is
exactly what you were getting. In your test instead, it was a very
unlucky case, as you say :-)
