In general I have been bracketing these sorts of workarounds with the
#if defined(UNDER_CE) statement, but in those two cases there appeared
to be pre-existing macros (BOOST_NO_GETSYSTEMTIMEASFILETIME in
boost\config\compiler\visualc.hpp and BOOST_NO_ANSI_APIS in
boost\config\platform\win32.hpp). I believe both were originally
introduced to support Boost.Threads and came about some time ago. I
personally have no preference though, and can certainly recast the WinCE
patches not to use them or to use an alternate macro name. Just let me
know where the consensus lies and I'll move that direction.
