Spirit and date_time use some files of type *.ipp (they are included

I had the misfortune to be reading one using MSVC which does not recognize this
as a C++ type and so they are not shown in color, nor laid out etc.

Although these are 'private' detail files, I wonder if *.ipp should be
deprecated for Boost code?

I also found that one date_time file gregorian_calender.ipp includes 0D 0D 0A
sequences which double spaces it and, more confusingly, confuses the MSVC IDE
editor so that warnings appear on the wrong line :-(

(Perhaps Jeff Garland would like to fix this in gregorian_calender.ipp

I understood that a check program had been devised for this 'mis-feature'.
Was this missed because it is not a C++ type 'known' to the checker program?
