No, and as far as I can tell it works OK - tentatively committed to develop.

Yes, |BOOST_NO_COMPLETE_VALUE_INITIALIZATION springs to mind, but I'm
sure there are others (||BOOST_NO_CXX11_HDR_REGEX is another as GCC had
a signature-correct, but non-functional <regex> for a while). I would
have to check the test cases to be sure.
