Exactly, it should certainly not be held up because a bug in some by now
evaporized version of VC (and subsequently fixed in newer versions) "needs"

My point was wholly different, though, stating that, iff clang-cl would be
a build option on windows, it would be much easier to pin-point a problem
to either the Boost code, or a transitional bug in VC.
