Let me point the key word of "indiscriminately".

MSVC 2015 (at least Update 3) does have support for constexpr, but it has 
bugs. Unfortunately, the URL in qcompilerdetection.h is resulting in 404. I'm 
trying to reproduce the issue again by compiling with the support and checking 
what breaks. I'll reply in an hour or so with the diagnostic.
