In a million years I never would have found that !

I wonder if BOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T is not set differently
in our versions of gcc. I'm using gcc 3.2 under Cygwin.

Up until now its been me basically working alone. As that's beginning to change
maybe this is a good idea. Right now tailing out things on the To Do list and rolling in
changes from you and Pavel Vozenilek (Intel 7.0 and by implication VC 6.0).
Maybe we'll look at this with draft #14. I've asked to be put into the review queue
so this might affect things as well.
