Oops, sorry.

It depends on how you plan to do it. If you replace Spirit within the
Boost source tree, then version 1.6.3 does work. However this isn't a
viable approach for regression tests. Unfortunately Spirit 1.6.3
requires my patch in order to be usable with Borland from outside the
Boost source tree.

My plan is to issue Spirit 1.6.4 specifically for this reason; with
Roland's patch using serialization with Borland is going to be much
easier. Still, I wouldn't want 1.34 to be further delayed just for this

Unfortunately, what with the shift to BBv2 and the false positives in
the regression tests I didn't realize what was going on until recently.
