That patch was wrong, I think. Since GCC sometimes takes the
BOOST_NO_TEMPLATE_PARTIAL_SPECIALISATION path (when that macro is
defined explicitly by e.g. libs/range/test/partial_workaround.cpp) the
namespace begin/end macros should be outside the
BOOST_NO_TEMPLATE_PARTIAL_SPECIALISATION test so the namespace is there
whichever code path the compiler takes. At least I think that's right.
The patch attached to this mail should be used instead of the previous
one (assuming my analysis is right).
