Right now every library enabled and disables internal debug support
individually. Its impossible to do it now from single place.
Suggestion for guidelines:
- If BOOST_NDEBUG is defined then all libraries will switch off any
debug support (asserts, pre- and post-condition checking, invariants etc).
There would be no exception.
- If BOOST_DEBUG is defined then all available debug suport
will be switched on. There would be no exceptions.
- If neither of macros is defined then libraries will behave as they behave
now - picking their own choice using library specific macros.
This would allow fine grained customization.
Enforcing this rule would require quite a lot of effort and cooperation
For example all assert()s would need to convert to BOOST_ASSERT()s.
