As some sort of technological preview? It is not portable enough to be
used within Boost, though perhaps a slew of regression failures will cause
that to change (unlikely). <rant>MS, in particular, is too busy taking it

absolutely zero compiler workarounds, and that would have to stay if it
was ever part of Boost.
