The behaviour changed and the code compiled if I changed always_true not a

struct always_true :

template <class T> inline
typename boost::enable_if_c<
, int
    return 1;

The behaviour didn't change and the code didn't compile if I made some
member of always_true actually depend on the template argument.

template <class T>
struct always_true :
    typedef typename boost::add_const<T>::type unused_type;

The actual condition to reproduce the issue seems very complex. My best
guess is that msvc11 gives up resolving template-parameter-dependent
condition and marks it as failure (in the sense of SFINAE) under a specific
