Actually that was my basic assertion and I asked for it correctness.
Your first answer implied, that I have to provide that definition on my
own (at least for me), this one says otherwise.
If you are right, than boost is prepared for every compliant C++
compiler, but (I **assume** again) regrettably not for the currently
state-of-the-art Microsoft compiler VC7.1.

It wasn't meant as an offense, please accept my apologies for my rough tone.
