I'm not so concerned about Win32 support as Boost is fine there.  I'm
worried about platforms like Haiku that only have GCC 2.x and no Boost

It would be nice to just write our own portable code for what we
actually need, rather than dragging in the whole kitchen sink as a
dependency for just a few dingleberries.
