For people who build with "warning as errors', this is a showstopper.

This is not "short notice"; I've been trying to get this bug fixed for over a year.

This is now an issue for Visual Studio users as well, since they have changed their codecvt to be standards compliant in VS 2012.
Boost is now in a position where we have a slower reaction time than Microsoft on this issue.
