As the maintainer of our in-house Boost distribution I have the freedom
to do so, and I have no other choice but to make boost work with recent
versions of msvc and /std:c++latest. I am perfectly aware of the fact
that changes to make this happen may clash with c++03 and the possible
lack of features introduced with c++11. Therefore I am sending out PRs
for people to see what changes are required as bare minimum in a c++11
environment. Based upon that we may mull over c++03 compatible changes
if needed.

One note: my /std:c++latest-capable version of 1.62 passed the full test
suite when compiled with vc14 update 3 in the same way as the Boost
master test matrix showed (well, with fewer test failures in some
cases). And I always run the test suite in all four combinations of
32/64 bit and debug/release mode to monitor the different outcomes that
become apparent when doing so.
