The bug appears to import all boost::detail identifiers into the global
namespace, not just critical_section. It's not reasonable to change them
all. A better way to deal with the problem would be to just remove the
offending "using namespace boost::detail;" line from
boost/serialization/detail/shared_count_132.hpp. It's even guarded for
Borland. Note also the "using namespace boost;" in the same header, it
imports all boost identifiers as well, and it's definitely not reasonable to
change these to contain an "explanation" suffix.
