When using BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT, the member still need to be _defined_
in a .cpp file (IIUC 9.4.2 par 4 of the standard), unless the enum-trick
is used, right?
However gcc, intel-linux and the mipspro compiler (and probably others)
do not require a seperate definition. OTOH IBM/VisualAge does really
_need_ the definition (otherwise the symbols are undefined when linking).
Would'nt it be better to advise library-developers to use an enum
instead of BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT if their library does not contain a
