No, clearly not. The code above checks that wchar_t == unsigned
short, and causes an error otherwise. That corresponds to not having
an intrinsic wchar_t. Anyway, if you changed the condition and the
assertion fired in the other branch of the #if, we'd have the same

excuse. Before stuff like this is checked in, it needs to be tested,
since it affects all boost developers using that compiler.
