Well... last I looked an intrinsic wchar_t (ie not a typedef for an int
type) *was* a std feature :-)

As for other one, we already have:

BOOST_NO_INT64_T - if there is no std::int64_t defined in boost/cstdint.hpp,
BOOST_NO_INTEGRAL_INT64_T - if std::int64_t can not be used in integral
constant expressions.

Both are defined in cstdint.hpp BTW, and I believe this adequately covers
this area, unless I'm missing something?
