I guess I should have said "potentially" here. I'm going to try

    const int WOULD_BLOCK = (int) (EOF - 1);
    const std::wint_t WWOULD_BLOCK = (std::wint_t) (WEOF - 1);

There's also an issue with using all capital. I'd like to allow users to be able

    using boost::iostreams::WOULD_BLOCK

and then use two similar-looking constants EOF and WOULD_BLOCK. If more people
would start using all caps for macros, WOULD block would have a higher chance of
clashing than would_block; however, I've already had to change a bunch of
lower-case identifiers -- including "unix" and "small" -- because they were
defined as macros.
