The basic problem is that the following is not legal C++:

strict bad { const int x; };

If a class contains const non-static members, they must have a
user-declared default constructor, so this basically rules out PODs or
any type with trivial default constructor.

It is annoying, because even though 'bad' looks safe to use with
aggregate initialization, it is not allowed.

Current compiler is version 0x582, when patched. It is probably not
worth worrying about unpatched versions.
