IMO, Chaos should have been a part of Boost years ago. If a popular
non-compliant compiler such as VC++ were able to be supported, then that
would be great, but since it realistically cannot be supported, that's the
problem of Microsoft. If Chaos were a part of boost and more libraries
started using it, Microsoft would be much more concerned about fixing their
horrible preprocessor.
