Did I miss the :-) here? If only things were so simple.
The error occurs in interval/io.hpp. Here a templated operator definition is
being defined in the boost::numeric namespace. The definitions of lower/upper
we are looking for are in this same boost::numeric namespace.
The definitions which VC is getting confused with in the boost::numeric::ublas
namespace can only be found by argument dependant (Konig) lookup.
We could look this up in the ISO standard. Circumstantial evidence from
several other compilers suggests VC 7.1 / 8.0beta is doing the wrong thing
Which is why I suspect these compilers do not implement namespace perfectly.
