I have to agree with this. Another boost configuration that disables
all that Microsoft crap that slows down code for no good reason would
be wonderful. I personally build Boost myself with this command (in a
..\bjam --build-type=complete --toolset=msvc-8.0 --without-mpi
I compile everything I ever get that even touches the STL with the
above defines, else nice crashes abound.
But for an example, a parser I made with Boost.Spirit took 5 minutes
without the above defines, took 5 second with them (times are pretty
accurate, it was a massive difference), that is how utterly crappy the
STL implementation is in VS2k5 and higher without those.
