Just msvc6. The problem is that the workarounds used for vc are
somewhat limited. One solution I can see is to change the "or_"
below into an "and_" and update mpl::list to use a "_tag" as well.
Making that change touches lots of files, though, so I'll let Aleksey
do it.

    template< typename T > struct is_sequence_impl
        : or_<
              identity< aux::has_tag<T> >
            , identity< aux::has_begin<T> >
