Getting multi-array to work with Borland would probably not be too
hard if you replaced all the non-type template parameters with MPL
integral constant wrappers. I didn't bother because it didn't seem
to actually be a regression from 1.30.2. The meta-comm result pages
seem to indicate that whatever's failing on Borland never worked
