Aha! Interesting... So they did "extend" their binders in some way, which
probaby causes the problem...

I understand this. We just use this technique to pass the template around
as a type, and later extract it using partial template specialization:

template<template<class> class Tpl, class T>
class x<Tpl<T> >
    // use Tpl and ignore T

I believe "typedef binder1st<int> type;" should be OK (and is OK with the
rest of compilers, at least in the regression's release view) since it's not
supposed to cause binder1st instantiation...

If I am not mistaken, the same technique is used by MPL in its lambda.

We have this, but I generally want to have also standard-compliant emulation
working. Just in case one wants to write code in cw, which is supposed to
also work, say, in vc8.

I see...

Then is it possible to take a look inside, and see what is so specific about
binder "extension" that causes the problem with this particular templates?

(unless this kind of thing is also not allowed with their licence)
