Subject: [boost] [config] explicit call of operator templates / msvc bug workaround

is there already a macro in Boost.Config that allows you to insert the
"template" keyword in the following code for those compilers that
require it?

struct functor{
template<class T>
void operator()();

template<class F>
void g(F f){
f.template operator()<int>(); //(1) works with GCC and comeau
f.operator()<int>(); //(2) works with MSVC

this apparently only applies to operator calls. MSVC accepts both (1)
and (2) for regular functions.

(instantiating the operator template with an object of type T as
argument, like mpl::for_each does, is not an option. I can't construct
