// Implicit instantiation requires that all member declarations be
// instantiated, but that the definitions are *not* instantiated.
//
// It's not particularly clear how this applies to enum's or typedefs;
// both are described as declarations [7.1.3] and [7.2] in the standard,
// however some compilers use "delayed evaluation" of one or more of
// these when implicitly instantiating templates.  We use typedef declarations
// by default, but try defining BOOST_USE_ENUM_STATIC_ASSERT if the enum
// version gets better results from your compiler...
//
// Implementation:
// Both of these versions rely on sizeof(incomplete_type) generating an error
// message containing the name of the incomplete type.  We use
// "STATIC_ASSERTION_FAILURE" as the type name here to generate
// an eye catching error message.  The result of the sizeof expression is either
// used as an enum initialiser, or as a template argument depending which version
// is in use...
// Note that the argument to the assert is explicitly cast to bool using old-
// style casts: too many compilers currently have problems with static_cast
// when used inside integral constant expressions.
