Comment (by eldiener):

 I have fixed this on the latest 'develop' branch of Boost PP. I have used
 a different techniques than the patches submitted as I did not want to
 make as drastic a change as was suggested to auto_rec. I did use the
 technique suggested in the seq_for_each patch of caching the seq size
 rather than having to recalculate it each time. The fix further consists
 of accepting the 257th inner-loop in BOOST_PP_FOR without forcing an error
 as long the op(r,state) returned 0, meaning the BOOST_PP_FOR processing is

 I tested this successfully with gcc and clang with the example given in
 #4501. The VC++ compiler issues a compiler error:

 fatal error C1009: compiler limit : macros nested too deeply

 but Boost PP can do nothing about that. VC++ succeeds when the number of
 sequence elements are more reasonable, althoug I did not experiment with
 the exact maximum number on which VC++ will process a
