/** \def BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_IS_NUMBER(sequence)

    \brief Asserts that the sequence is a number.

    The macro checks that the parameter is a number.
    If it is not a number, it forces a compiler error.
    The macro normally checks for a number only in 
    debug mode. However an end-user can force the macro 
    to check or not check by defining the macro 
    BOOST_VMD_ASSERT_DATA to 1 or 0 respectively.

    sequence = a possible number.

    returns  = Normally the macro returns nothing. 
               If the sequence is a number, nothing is 
               For VC++, because there is no sure way of forcing  
               a compiler error from within a macro without producing
               output, if the sequence is not a number the 
               macro forces a compiler error by outputting invalid C++.
               For all other compilers a compiler error is forced 
               without producing output if the sequence is not a
