Hi there, just browsed through the tuple's doc and I think we need to
update the Portability section:

This is what it's now:


The library code is(?) standard C++ and thus the library works with a
standard conforming compiler. Below is a list of compilers and known
problems with each compiler:
Compiler Problems
gcc 2.95 -
edg 2.44 -
Borland 5.5 Can't use function pointers or member pointers as tuple elements
Metrowerks 6.2 Can't use ref and cref wrappers
MS Visual C++ No reference elements (tie still works). Can't use ref
and cref wrappers

I'm using the MS VC 7.1 compiler and for this the statement is simply
not true anymore. I hope not too many people got turned off by this
