In order to use VC++ code in PP and VMD the clang compiler supporting
VC++ has to be identified and set to use the VC++ workarounds. That code
for both PP and VMD is in /boost/preprocessor/config/config.hpp. I need
to know what are the preprocessor defines being set by clang when it is
in the mode that supports VC++. Is both __clang__ and _MSC_VER defined
in all cases ?
