IMHO, BOOST_ASSERT_MSG should be optimized, and this is possible to do while
keeping the current interface. If
boost::assertion::detail::assertion_failed_msg is defined to be never inlined,
and the checked condition is marked so that it is unlikely to be true, then
this would solve the problems I mentioned. This will probably require adding

I can do this a bit later, if noone objects.
