Subject: [boost] Deprecation guidelines?

I was trying to figure out how Boost handles deprecated classes,
functions, headers, macros, etc.
The following command finds several approaches within boost
$ grep -ir deprecate boost-1.44.0/include/boost/* \
| grep -v "This header is deprecated" \
| grep -v BOOST_SPIRIT_DEPRECATED
Surprisingly, none of these use compiler support. e.g.
Where can one find guidelines on how to deprecate things in Boost? What
is the proper way to check that code using Boost is clean?
