#4706: ValueType requirements seem wrong
 Reporter: dave | Owner: nasonov
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: any
  Version: Boost 1.44.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 According to the doc:

> The specific requirements on value types to be used in an any are:
> A !ValueType is !CopyConstructible [20.1.3].
> A !ValueType is optionally Assignable [23.1]. The strong exception-
 safety guarantee is required for all forms of assignment.
> The destructor for a !ValueType upholds the no-throw exception-safety

 The doc seems to be saying that Assignable is not strictly required, but
 if you supply an assignment operator, it must offer the strong guarantee.
 But nothing in any depends on assignability of its !ValueType parameter,
 much less that it provides the strong guarantee.
