// Compile type discovery whether given type is abstract class or not.
//
//   Requires DR 337 to be supported by compiler
//   (http://anubis.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/cwg_active.html#337).
//
//
// Believed (Jan 2004) to work on:
//  - GCC 3.4
//  - VC++ 7.1
//  - compilers with new EDG frontend (Intel C++ 7, Comeau 4.3.2)
//
// Doesn't work on:
//  - VC++6, VC++7.0 and less
//  - GCC 3.3.X and less
//  - Borland C++ 6 and less
//      
//
// History:
//  - Originally written by Rani Sharoni, see
//    http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=df893da6.0207110613.75b2fe90%40posting.google.com
//    At this time supported by EDG (Intel C++ 7, Comeau 4.3.2) and VC7.1.
//  - Adapted and added into Boost.Serialization library by Robert Ramey 
//    (starting with submission #10).
//  - Jan 2004: GCC 3.4 fixed to suport DR337 (Giovanni Bajo).
//  - Jan 2004: modified to be part of Boost.TypeTraits (Pavel Vozenilek).
//  - Nov 2004: Christoph Ludwig found that the implementation did not work with
//              template types and gcc-3.4 or VC7.1, fix due to Christoph Ludwig
//              and John Maddock.
//  - Dec 2004: Added new config macro BOOST_NO_IS_ABSTRACT which causes the template
//              to degrade gracefully, rather than trash the compiler (John Maddock).
