The "OSL5" regression tester for Boost CVS HEAD tests a version of
GCC with all of those C++0x features *except* concepts, so we can
start (conditionally) using these features in Boost libraries.

Don't write a constrained template (i.e., one with any concept
requirements placed on it) that uses variadic templates, e.g., the
following will probably crash:

        auto concept OutputStreamable<typename T> {
                std::ostream operator<<(std::ostream&, const T&);

        void print() { }

        template<typename T, typename... Rest>
        requires OutputStreamable<T>, OutputStreamable<Rest>...
        void print(const T& x, const Rest&... rest) {

Take away the "requires" clause and it should be fine, because you
would be using variadic templates separately from concepts.
