boost/system/error_code.hpp defines "errc" as a collection of standard
error codes (based on posix).

allows them to accept a single parameter of an enum type when
is_error_code_enum is defined to true for that enum type.

It does not, however, actually do this for its own errc enum.

As a result, code such as this fails to compile:

boost::system::error_code ec(boost::system::errc::operation_canceled);

Is there some good reason for this, or is it an oversight? It's
certainly more annoying to have to explicitly specify the
