Following on from the recent discussion, we now have:
BOOST_NO_IS_ABSTRACT added to the config system, this is likely to cause
some new failures with config_test.cpp until we get the macro added to those
compiler config files that need it (although Gcc, Visual C++, Borland C++
are already taken care of).
is_abstract no longer uses SFINAE when BOOST_NO_IS_ABSTRACT is defined,
instead it defaults to the same value as is_polymorphic: the rationale is
that "true" is the safe default (if there is one), but since non-polymorphic
types obviously can't be abstract, we can safely evaluate to false for
Users wanting some other behaviour should check for BOOST_NO_IS_ABSTRACT.
Robert, is this enough for you to fix the ODR problem in the serialisation
lib for is_abstract?
