Subject: [boost] [typeof][implementation]why not use decltype or conditional expr?

Why couldn't the BOOST_TYPEOF macro be defined
to simply use the new keyword, decltype, if
it's available? I assume the macro, BOOST_HAS_DECLTYPE,
indicates whether it is available.
And if decltype not available, why couldn't it use the
conditional expression method described here:
I would think that would be simpler and more portable.
