Though there may be many details about this, I think the suggestion will
be really helpful in improving the readability of the Boost code.
Most readers/users of Boost are not familiar with specific compiler
versioning details, and with these macros defined and used consistently,
It will be extremely easy for readers to recognize those
compiler-specific workaround parts in the code, and choose to look into
or just ignore them.
I also suggest that these macros be a part of the Boost.Config, and all
the Boost library authors to utilize them consistently. Furthermore, all
the existing code could be rewrite accordingly if possible.
