win32.hpp has using std::min and using std::max directives. (win32.hpp in
fact overrides these functions).

These directives hinder use of the max function elsewhere in a client
program, for example, by #included c libraries, which are expecting to use
the global (non overridden) max function.

Indeed, Sutter's More Exceptional C++ #40 (p. 236) asserts that using
directives/declerations should never appear in any headers (certainly not at
file scope!).

Will this be removed in future releases?
