Subject: [Boost-users] [Proto] Annoying MSVC bug
From: Dave Jenkins (david_at_[hidden])

Almost every useful Proto program has workarounds for an MSVC bug that
causes syntax errors on valid nested function types. Eric Niebler filed a
bug report with Microsoft on 6/14/2007 and they closed it on 6/19/2007 with
status "Closed(Won't Fix)". This is back in the days of Visual Studio 2005.

I'd like to encourage Microsoft to reopen this bug report and fix it. Could
any of you with logins to Microsoft Connect go here
and answer their 3 question survey expressing your dissatisfaction and
encourage them to fix this.
