OK, agreed. Given that we use another approach for static constants,
what do you think about:

template< BOOST_UNUSED_TEMPLATE_PARAMETER( bool, cond ),
          BOOST_UNUSED_TEMPLATE_PARAMETER( typename, T ) >
struct enable_if;

Or should we instead replace BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT by a #ifdef, too? Or
is BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT different, probably because there is no "right"
code and a workaround, but there are two equally good ways to declare
static constants?
