I have been making fixes on the 'develop' branch of various CMT
libraries, but I don't think it should be an issue for 1.63 so close to
release. In other words I think it too dangerous to push these fixes for
1.63 as it is now scheduled and I don't see why we can't wait for 1.64.
While we try to satisfy VC++ end-users because VC++ is a very heavily
used compiler I would not compromise the integrity of the release for
this issue. If Boost decides to push back the 1.63 release by a few
weeks to satisfy this single concern, then I can see trying to push
through these changes for 1.63.
