BTW, the test code itself is at
It tries to value-initialize various types of objects, and returns the
number of detected initialization failures. John has already looked at the
code, but if you also have any comment, please let me know.

FYI, I assigned a ticket to myself to define the new defect macro for any
compiler that has failures on this specific test at the Boost Config
