/** \def BOOST_VMD_IS_IDENTIFIER(...)

\brief Tests whether a parameter is an identifier.

...       = variadic parameters

The first variadic parameter is required and it is the input to test.

Further variadic parameters are optional and are identifiers to match.
The data may take one of two forms; it is either one or more single identifiers
or a single Boost PP tuple of identifiers.

returns   = 1 if the parameter is an identifier, otherwise 0.

If the parameter is not an identifier,
or if optional identifiers are specified and the identifier
does not match any of the optional identifiers, the macro returns 0.

Identifiers are registered in VMD with:

#define BOOST_VMD_REG_XXX (XXX) where XXX is a v-identifier.

The identifier must be registered to be found.

Identifiers are pre-detected in VMD with:

#define BOOST_VMD_DETECT_XXX_XXX where XXX is an identifier.

If you specify optional identifiers and have not specified the detection
of an optional identifier, that optional identifier will never match the input.

If the input is not a VMD data type this macro could lead to
a preprocessor error. This is because the macro
uses preprocessor concatenation to determine if the input
is an identifier once it is determined that the input does not
start with parenthesis. If the data being concatenated would
lead to an invalid preprocessor token the compiler can issue
a preprocessor error.
