(1) Look into config/compilers/intel.hpp, it's not that easy. I do have
access to the Intel compiler, but of course not to all versions. And I
only use Linux, thus a single platform. I simply used all the knowledge
and experience compiled into the config-system as this is what it is
supposed to provide, right? But I can duplicate the config's code if you
want to detach checked_delete from the config system...

(2) This is only included for the Intel compiler and I prefer code clarity
here over duplicating strange work-around code. Actually
BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT nicely encapsulates this. Or do you know of any actual
problem by introducting the dependency? It's IMHO the smaller evil here...

Regards, Daniel

PS: While adding the comments Dave asked for, I also added a comment to my
local copy about the explicit namespace qualification in checked_deleter
to prevent ADL, as this is also not obvious from the code alone why it's
required. Should be OK, right? :)
