Heh. Have you looked at the Function regression tests? They're a bloody
mess of expected failures on lots of compilers... I guess the difference
between this test and other compile-fail tests that the library can't
really do much to make it fail, and we're only adding it because we know
some compilers get it wrong. But perhaps there's a fix, to make these
compilers pass the compile-fail test? At least if we add a test we won't
forget about it :)
