Sorry about necrobumping, but I've ignored this thread previously as the
subject line didn't make it obvious this thread was of my interest.

I was looking for something similar to BOOST_OVERRIDABLE_SYMBOL as I want
my library header only and Boost.System requires the category to be a
single static object and it'll even use address comparison to test if the
categories are the same:
Is it guaranteed the above code will return the same object even if this
code was included in different libraries used by the same program?
