Ok, then I will try to look into this later, understand more how these
templates are used, and propose a patch.
This will not be the first workaround for this compiler that I propose. I
think it was once suggested to use something like BOOST_WORKAROUND. I will
try to look into that approach too.

Yes, I will do that.
