Interesting. IE6 is probably still the majority case for our users (Boost
users are weird b/c they tend to use alternative browsers much more then
'regular folks' -- I base this comment on Wiki web stats, BTW). Still, I
agree, this doesn't seem like a big enough issue to spend time on -- but
perhaps someone else will contribute a fix ;-)

If only it were true -- the amount of time spent by really talented folks that
hang out around here supporting old compiler relics is almost unimaginable...
