I think nobody is going to prevent you from supporting any compiler you
want :> However, I do suggest that *if there is new branch* of boost,
many regression tests targeted at old (nonconforming) compilers should
be pulled out from this branch. Effectively, to make new features
available for old compilers, these features have to be back-ported to
the "old branch". It's just an idea how this could look like - by no
means I'm suggesting it's best way to go.
