Hmmm - the appeal to me of such a standards committee proposal would be
the the fact that it's just a minor variation on static_assert. So
hopefully the whole saga a standards effort might be reduced to
something in scale to the modest nature of such a proposal. (of course
this is a pipe dream). But if someone want's to much around with it- as
someone will, it could implement as some sort of optional argument to
static_assert which of course opens up the field to all sorts of mischief.

In the meantime, I would love to see someone come up with a useful
implementation of BOOST_STATIC_WARNING.
