Using John's suggestion, it now correctly disables wide character support
for g++ 2.95, so the three failing tests that Genny reported (and which I
posted) are unrelated to wide characters. To deal with them, one may set
"expected failures", as Gennadiy suggested.

For MSVC 6, in my last posting, I posted a patch to disable wide characters
for MSVC 6, as well. That takes care of the three other test failures on
that compiler, since they were related to wide characters.

So in summary, one may do:

- Remove all BOOST_WORKAROUND's (for MSVC 6 and g++, they are not needed
anymore for the former, and for the latter, "expected failures" is used)
- Set expected failures to 3 for g++ 2.95
- Disable wide character support for MSVC 6, using the patch I gave:

#if defined(BOOST_NO_STRINGSTREAM) || \
    defined(BOOST_NO_STD_WSTRING) || \
    defined(BOOST_NO_STD_LOCALE) || \
    defined(BOOST_NO_CWCHAR) || \
    defined(BOOST_MSVC) && (BOOST_MSVC <= 1200)

- Run regression tests, and if ok, ship Boost. :)
