At least we have a chance now to make it work. My plan is to wait for the
next regression round and see which tests are still failing with the
implicit local instantiation mode. AFAICS, all the statics you are using
are const, therefore multiple copies shouldn't hurt...
In the end, I will have to add a new feature to the boost.build feature set
that lets us control the template instantiation mode. I would think there
are other compilers that could make use of this feature. But that is
something for after the release, or else Doug will rip my head off. ;-)
