 The quoted lines of comment are intended to provide an explanation to
 revision [47967], by Joseph Gauterin, following a suggestion by Steven

 MSVC 7.1 and Borland didn't do ADL, when we still had a using-declaration
 (''using std::swap''), inside swap_impl. So Steven suggested to do a
 using-directive (''using namespace std'') instead: (suggestion a)

 Now that we have a using-directive, ADL appears to be done whenever
 appropriate, even for those specific compilers. As confirmed by the test
 results of ''specialized_in_global'' and ''specialized_in_other'', at

 So would it be okay to you to have the ticket resolved as "invalid"?
