concerning Boost.Spirit regressions, ticket #6126 "Signed integer members
of Boost.Fusion adapted ADTs are not output correctly with
Boost.Spirit.Karma rules" <>
has a patch. It fixes the problem for g++ and clang++ in the Boost
library -- even though it is suspected that the original code is correct
and a compiler error is the real source of the problem. The problem
didn't occur with MSVC.

Best regards,
