Thanks for this suggestion, Peter, I was thinking along the same lines
as well. But for a start, I rather went for the low-risk path affecting
only one compiler. During my experiments to find a fix for my problem I
noticed that the decltype-based implemention required a template type
alias to work thoughout all Boost libraries. Otherwise the compiler
would complain about either a missing 'typename' keyword or a
superfluous one. Thus, as long as there is no better way to deal with
that the first test would have to check for
!defined(BOOST_NO_CXX11_TEMPLATE_ALIASES) as well. I will implement this
in the next couple of minutes and start-off another run of the full
Boost test-suite to see what's happening...

Any comments on that?
