Just to be sure, I'm quite happy to keep running the regression tests
for vc6 for as long as people would like it, personally I do not use vc6
anymore but since I was still needing to develop with until last year I
fully sympathise with people who do need it. I'm also very grateful I
don't have to deal with it anymore ;) I think it should still be a per
library maintainer decision, if they have put effort into supporting old
compilers and wish it to stay as the library is very stable and complete
(like boost.bind) then thats up to them. Obviously if they require a
boost library that drops support for old compilers then it may not be
their choice.
