Good point. The product manager actually thought UTF-8 literals were
supporting, so maybe they will appear in the final release.

We can always just define BOOST_NO_UNICODE_LITERALS until all three
flavors are fully supported. That probably makes more sense.

For every macro, a separate test case .ipp file has to be written and
then tested for every compiler. Given the number of new C++0x features,
the Boost macros will become unmanageable if they are too fine grained.
