We can do better than that, stay tuned! :) The last piece of the
puzzle, now, is choosing a migration plan. BOOST_WORKAROUND will have
a different interface and I don't think it is feasible to replace all
invocations in one sweep (though I haven't actually counted them) and
even if it is the risk of destabilization is high. What about
momentarily use BOOST_WORKAROUND_2 as name for the new macro and
gradually do the transition? At the end, we would have just to change
BOOST_WORKAROUND_2 to BOOST_WORKAROUND everywhere. Not that I like
this too much but this is the only idea that I have.
