I've just tried to compile a small piece of code using mpl::switch_
starting from an example Aleksey Gurtovoy sent to this list a while ago.

I slightly modified the code to use the boost::is_same<T,U> template but
I can't make it compile. On the other hand, if I comment out the line in
the switch_body containing the is_same template, it compile without any

I spent the whole day on this and I'm lost. Any help would be welcome.


PS: I'm using boost 1.30.2 and g++ 3.3.3.
