It looks to me like numeric_limits on GCC 3.2.3 is broken;

              numeric_limits<double>::has_infinity = false
              numeric_limits<double>::infinity() == 0

I suspect boost/limits.hpp could fix this if it knew to do so; but
since <limits> exists, boost/limits.hpp doesn't 'fix' anything. Does
anyone have thoughts about (reasonably portable) ways to "convince"
boost/limits.hpp to provide numeric_limits even if the compiler
already has one?
