It's not essential, and is used in a header that most parts of Boost.Graph
don't include by default. The Sun compiler breaks on many other parts of
Boost.Graph as well, though, so I'm not too concerned about portability to
it (most of the Sun compiler regression test errors have nothing to do
with Xpressive). The IBM compiler seems to break on PropertyTree as well,
which is used for GraphML input. Those are the two major compilers that
fail large parts of BGL; my opinion is just to avoid building the
boost_graph library rather than trying to only compile those parts of it
that aren't broken.
