Thanks Paul. But I do understand the reason why we need to disable macro
expansion (at least I think so).
I was referring to the following sentence
o Use boost::std_min(a,b) if you do require argument-dependent
look-up. boost::std_min() delegates to std::min().
I can't see where ADL comes into play here.
