I haven't forgotten about this. :-) I have been playing with Peder's
remove_xxx implementation for vc6 and vc7.0 and the results look really
good so far. All the type_traits remove_* tests pass on these compilers
with the patch. Also, python builds successfully, and approx 20% faster
with the change. (The number seems large to me, I should rerun the tests
to be sure.) The python tests also all pass. This is after disabling
BOOST_TT_BROKEN_COMPILER_SPEC and using Peder's remove_* implementations.

I hope to run the full set of Boost's regression tests with the changes
and compare with the results from HEAD. But that will have to wait until
I get back from OOPSLA.
