Thanks, I just created a PR to add this [1].
I decided against using predef-check for now, because it might be
useful to still run the tests and see what's failing on new compilers.

Plus, compilers that are known to be unsupported should fail rather
fast because of Hana's <config.hpp> header, so the amount of compiler
output should be manageable.
