// MSVC supports types which have alignments greater than the normal
// maximum: these are used for example in the types __m64 and __m128
// to provide types with alignment requirements which match the SSE
// registers.  Therefore we extend type_with_alignment<> to support
// such types, however, we have to be careful to use a builtin type
// whenever possible otherwise we break previously working code:
// see http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.boost.devel/173011
// for an example and test case.  Thus types like a8 below will
// be used *only* if the existing implementation can't provide a type
// with suitable alignment.  This does mean however, that type_with_alignment<>
// may return a type which cannot be passed through a function call
// by value (and neither can any type containing such a type like
// Boost.Optional).  However, this only happens when we have no choice 
// in the matter because no other "ordinary" type is available.
