concerning regressions in Boost.Test, ticket #6331 "g++ compilation error
due to ambiguity between template<class Cond, class T> struct
boost::enable_if and class boost::unit_test::decorator::enable_if as well
as the disable_if counterparts introduced after Boost 1.48.0 (up to at
least svn rev. 76217)" <> is
quite annoying, as it makes Boost.Test unusable with all libraries, which
make use of boost::enable_if<Cond, T> and don't fully qualify the
namespace boost::. This affects also several Boost libraries, e.g.,
Boost.Spirit. This breaking change was introduced after the Boost 1.48
