I dropped support for CW 7.x in the current CVS.  It doesn't support
one very important metaprogramming technique (i.e. it is nonconforming
in an important way), the workarounds for which tend to be very costly
in development time.  CW 8.3 works great, though.  I *think* Boost
1.30.2 still supports CW 7.x as well, but I'm not positive.

Whoa.  You shouldn't be using the compatibility library with
Metrowerks.  It has a very good standard library of its own.
