you're right there was an inconsistency.
but the lines you're quoting are not in CVS anymore, I commited the fix
in the end of march (unless I had trouble with CVS, like commiting in a
branch or something), it's now :


#if BOOST_WORKAROUND( BOOST_MSVC, <= 1300) // this whole header is
specifically for msvc

which is consistent, and adequate with the fact that we know VC7.1 can
compile without the workaround (and expect all later versions to)
