That is why I decided to call mine "BOOST_BINARY_LITERAL," however, it was
also suggested that BOOST_BITS may be simpler and possibly just as
descriptive but with less typing. I don't mind either wayt. Right now I
think I prefer that it has "literal" in it, since it's more clear that it is
useable much like other integral literals. In fact, the result is a hex or
octal literal (depending on which version of my macro you look at).
