aC++ didn't like it. This is CR JAGaf33512 -- aC++ tries to instantiate
template member functions even if it's unused. Pls. see attachment. I've
addressed the problems you mention below. Although I don't know what you
mean by a patch?? Let me know if it's good enough for check in.
Thanks for being patient with me, I'm a stone-age C++ programmer who
just got transported into the 21st century and I'm still trying to get
my feet wet. It's a lot of material to absorb in a short time.

There are a number of problems with it:
1. It's not a patch as requested (nit; it was probably easier for me
to handle than a patch would've been)
2. It defines an implementation detail function in the boost::
3. It uses ALL_CAPS identifiers for non-macro names (TR1, TR2)
Instead of fixing the patch I used a simpler static assertion that
should only fail to work on compilers that don't support
is_convertible (CWPro7 and earlier), which I've already dropped
support for IIRC.
Let me know if aCC becomes happy.
