Guys, please, we have BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT for this:

BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT(type, value = x);

We also have config-macros to detect the presence of long long and whether
64-bit integers can be used in integral-constant-expressions.

For portablity you should use long long and the uLL suffix, and not the
Microsoft-specific ui64 suffix (versions of VC++ that don't support long
long, don't support 64-bit constant expressions anyway so you don't loose
anything by going down this route).
