Since you're at it, you could use BOOST_WORKAROUND.
As David noted, we need a stricitier system of macros. For instance, in my
opinion direct checking against __GNUC__, __BORLANDC__ and the such should
be forbidden since it's been proven to bring problems (compilers try to
pretend to not be themselves). We should rely on BOOST_MSVC, BOOST_GNUC, etc
everywhere, always use BOOST_WORKAROUND, and possibly BOOST_WORKAROUND_GCC
or similar macros.
