While looking at this, I noticed that we have two macros:

There's an old thread from 2009 where the consensus was that "BOOST_NO_INITIALIZER_LISTS" should be removed in favor of the 0X one.

The only library that is using BOOST_NO_INITIALIZER_LISTS is Boost.Random (and some tests in Boost.Config).

I think I'll make that change first; unless someone complains.
