Cleaner code? Avoiding nasty copy/paste problems with include guard
names? The fact that you can still automatically easily generate
standards-compliant code for release tarballs?

Anyway, I understand that a library like Boost doesn't want to rely on
this, but personally, but it sounds sane to me that other projects
(that are less depended on and don't need to support a gazillion of
compilers) use it.
