I considered that briefly, but decided not to pursue it for several

The Win32 regression testing is already sucking up too much of my time and
my computer's time. Every added compiler makes that worse. And changing the
setup so close to the Boost release doesn't seem smart to me. The Boost
policy not to test betas is probably a good one, too.

I'll add VC++ 7.1 as soon as possible once I get a release copy, but have
no idea when that will be.

However, if you wanted to start running VC++ 7.1 regression tests now, and
posting them as a separate set of tables, that would be fine with me.
