The problem is that if you define it, the code will not execute on Win95
(at least for _WIN32_WINNT=4; higher values have more restrictions, of
course). I don't know if there's really a huge problem with this.

Another (real) issue: defining it in the jamfiles makes the boost libs
compile. However, you cannot avoid that a user writes something like
this in his own code:

#include <windows.h>
#include <boost/test/...>

This fails for the same reasons!
