Yes, it does do so for Borland already, however the argument to
BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT still has to be something that the Borland compiler can
cope with. The usual culprit is something like:

template <class T>
void foo(T)
BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT(int, value = something);
BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(value > 1); // fails on Borland as do all other uses of
value *within this scope*
