I spotted more dubious code in the library, for example, I could easily remove hundreds of lines of dead code from preprocesser/seq/fold_left.hpp, and simplify BOOST_PP_SEQ_FOLD_LEFT saving between 15% and 90% of its execution costs (measured in macro replacements), depending on the input.
Make sure that it's portable. Most of the preprocessors out there
have slightly different behavior for macro replacement.

No. I noticed them and I was planning on reviewing
them after 1.44 goes out.
