Please implement the align_as keyword.

It is very useful to port to other c++ 11x compilers.

If you cannot please make the system headers accept it, so we can say

#define align_as(x) __declspec(align(x))

It was working this way visual studio 2010

Historically declspec(align) was a problem with gcc since it was at the beginning of the class and gcc attributes were at the end. Now gcc has alignas which is in front of the class

Thank you for contacting Microsoft. We are implementing C++11 features in a staged fashion and in due time you will see an implementation of "alignas".
