Boost :

as you probably know there's a Service Pack for Visual Studio 2005 which
fixes a significant number of bugs.

Unfortunately _MSC_VER is 1400 for MSVC8 with and without Service Pack,
so there is no straightforward way for a library to find out whether SP1
fixes are available or not.

The release notes of that Service Pack mention a fixed bug in the
preprocessor messing up line counting in certain situations, so it seems
there could be a way to implement a detection mechanism in the
preprocessor on top of it...

Solutions anyone?
