This actually seems to work rather well - I've committed a fix to
develop, but the new code is only enabled for Intel-15 and later as
that's all I have installed at present.

I've enabled SFINAE-expression support + binary literal support under
MSVC as these seem to be working well there, and SFINAE-expression
support enables a lot of very useful code.

Linux GCC emulation I've left alone, even though there do appear to be
several features supported beyond what the underlying GCC version
supports. The compiler also seems to be ignoring -std= flags and just
supporting everything always?

Regards, John.
