The currect strategy is that ETI workarounds are added on case-by-case
basis, in particular because VC 7.0 variation of the bug is too costly and
inconvenient to workaround to do it blindly, and because the number of class
template specializations per translation unit was found to have a direct
correlation with MSVC 6.5's "internal structure overflow" error.
I would gladly apply a patch for 'push_front', if you are willing to submit
