That should be "wouldn't compile without that".

First of all, this is _not_ dependent on the version of Intel Compiler,
but on the version of (emulated) VC! If makes no sense at all to provide
options for Intel 9/8.0 that are not provided for lower versions.

So far, I and several others have run boost tests for Intel now for
several years and analyzed/submitted many DRs making this compiler free
of any errors for the last few boost releases. This was based on a
configuration which always has been considered by anybody of us to be
the best for this compiler. I don't know which positive effect at all
could be expected by introducing undocumented and unsupported compiler
options that are known to be considerably dangerous. I'm glad that
Vladimir removed them again.
