Yes, it looks ok.
But I guess we're on the same side ;-)
This is what we wanted with BOOST_HAS_CURRENT_FUNCTION : just to tell us if
the current compiler has a FUNCTION_NAME facility.
(so, it could be renamed: BOOST_HAS_FUNCTION_NAME)

If we find that a current compiler has a FUNCTION_NAME facility, we (the
maintainer, of course) update the current_function.hpp header.

Where am I wrong?
