there is another problem. I could have somewhere:

class A {
// ...
  void verify(bool);

... and macro named "verify" will completly destroy my project. I
suggest 2 solutions:
- give it different name (uppercase ONE !)
- #undef assert and make it just better "assert" macro

Anyway I remember that John Torjo already posted similar library (named
smart_assert) to boost.
