I tried this (in the algorithm/string library where I also tested the
enum trick for Pavol Droba) and just replaced in
algorithm/string/std/string_traits.hpp following lines

   enum { value = false } ;
   typedef mpl::bool_< value > type ;


   typedef mpl::bool_< false > value ;
   typedef mpl::bool_< value > type ;

and this evidently results in a compilation error. I am not very fluent
in mpl but AFAICT this seems like a nice solution but not exactly a
drop-in replacement for the current situation.
