As I read it, the suggestion is that BOOST_MSVC and MSC_VER would be
replaced in the Boost code base with BOOST_CXX_MSVC. Using the script it
would be trivial to both use the changed semantics (already done) and
change the macro name (1 extra line).

I don't read the Boost list too closely anymore (too much traffic, too
little time) so it's possible that I'd miss any "wake up, Angus" call.
Feel free to ping direct.

Meantime, I'll move onto Borland.


ps, I tried to redo the script in Python, but since it's just a bunch of
regex's, sed and the 'find -name boost '*' | while read file' loop is the
optimal solution here; the Python version is twice as long. Admittedly, my
Python skills aren't what they might be :)
