Ah! I'd forgotten VS2010 has C++0x auto support.

I really need to concentrate on all the half-complete Boost projects
I'm working on. Plus there are going to be a stream of compiler
releases with various 0x features over the next year or two. So it
would be great if someone else could take on adding C++0x macros as a
project. (And not John Maddock, either, as he has already paid his
dues when it comes to configuration macros!)

While it is really easy to add the macros, it does take a bit of time
to monitor tests on various compilers to be sure they all work.
