Oh this is definitely very good. Time I downloaded the Linux version.

There are some false positives however. uBLAS test3,4,5 should fail really.
They have a couple of missing typenames with gcc-3.4 correctly picks up. The
patches for this should be merged into Boost CVS very soon.
I wonder if the Intel compiler can be configured to be a little more strict.
The more good compilers that can pick up code that is non standard conforming
the better.
