My thoughts were along the lines of "we can just bump the internal
Boost version if that is necessary". From I see it might require a more recent
gcc, although it is not clear whether 4.4/4.5 would have the same bug
or if it was newly introduced in 4.6 :-|

If it absolutely requires 4.6, then it might be a problem.

If 4.4/4.5 are OK, but "only" 4.6.0-4.6.9 are to be blacklisted, I'd
argue it is not a significant problem.

I *also* assume that Boost avoids breaking with MSVC :)
