I can see it being convenient to pull all the integer types into the
current namespace in one operation. To that end, I'd like to propose
that cstdint.hpp change to look like this:


namespace boost

namespace integer_types
#include <boost/stdint.h>

using namespace integer_types;

} // namespace boost


This would allow a particular function to do something like this:

void fn()
        using namespace boost::integer_types;

        int_least8_t var1;
        uint32 var2;

In general, I think this kind of sectioning would be useful for
groups of related names that show up in "utility" libraries like
