Subject: [boost] [config] gcc and <unordered_set> vs <ext/hash_set>

Folks, Dave A. asked for a config macro to detect the presence of std
conforming <unordered_set> and <unordered_map>.
However, I've run into an unexpected issue: it appears that with gcc-4.3.x
you cannot include both <unordered_set> and <ext/hash_set> as attempting to
do so leads to endless errors inside the <ext/*> headers :-(
Including either one of the headers is just fine though.
So... how should we handled this? Not define BOOST_HAS_HASH when
<unordered_set> *is* available?
As far as I can tell the only library effected by this change would be
Boost.Serialization which would lose has_set support in gcc's c++0x mode.
How do folks feel about that?
