OK, the following:

boost::compressed_pair<const int, long> cp2;

Gives me a compiler error with VC7.1 (it should as well, but it's not really
a compressed_pair issue).

Where are this:

boost::compressed_pair<const int, long> cp2(0); compiles as expected.

As does

boost::compressed_pair<const myclass, long> cp2;

as long as myclass has a user-defined default constructor.

That's all exactly what I would expect, what am I missing?
