I couldn't see how it was valid on other compilers, but I assumed that it
had compiled on at least one compiler before being uploaded.

There are similar problems in bitfield.hpp line 111 and 117 and base.hpp
lines 61 and 67.

I can't get enum.cpp (the test/example program) to compile for two reasons:

(i) The form for boost::function is the preferred syntax rather than the
portable, could it be changed to portable? test_optional_method becomes:
template <typename T, typename A>
void test_optional_method(
        A arg,
        typename T::optional expected,
        const char* method_name,
        boost::function1<typename T::optional, A> method

(ii) My compiler does not like the use of 'typename' in the body of
test_enum and test_bitfield, eg in test_enum
test_parse(first.str(), typename T::optional(first));
test_parse(first.str(), T::optional(first));
I can't say which is the correct syntax or if the version without typename
works for other compilers.
