// Special version for VC12 which has a problem when a base class (such as non_copyable) has a deleted
// copy constructor.  In this case the compiler thinks there really is a copy-constructor and tries to
// instantiate the deleted member.  std::is_copy_constructible has the same issue (or at least returns
// an incorrect value, which just defers the issue into the users code) as well.  We can at least fix
// boost::non_copyable as a base class as a special case:
