I greped for it and it seems it is not used very often. How about using
BOOST_WORKAROUND to keep the code local and thus not hide the actual
workaround in a MACRO and spread to knowledge? Especially given it's
only a workaround for a single compiler. Or do you think it is
comparable to BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT and will be used a lot in the future
and doesn't fall into the category of problems BOOST_WORKAROUND is
supposed to solve?
