And more than that, by the time interprocess is included I think we will
be dropping support for VC6 as an overall 'Boost policy'. And even now
it's your option not to support non-compliant compilers for your
library. My view is that for new libraries, if someone is really
motivated to have your library, they can help put in the labor to help
port it to a brain-dead compiler.
