But you were out of luck if one of the types contained commas.
BOOST_MPL_ASSERT_IS_SAME(T, pair<int, long>) // error!
and no amount of parenthesization could fix it.

You can always code your own ASSERT_IS_SAME.
#define ASSERT_IS_SAME(x,y) BOOST_MPL_ASSERT((boost::is_same<x,y>))
There are too many other predicates that people want to assert to
make is_same a special case in the library.

Aleksey's working on the brand new documentation; the intention is to
document everything that the user can configure. If there are
particular things you want to see documented, please be specific.
