One major downside to that course is that some implementations cause
the equivalent of "using namespace std;" if you #include even _one_
such header.

I don't know if we really have a problem here. The unqualified name
was selected with an #ifdef which only applies to one of the
compilers we're supporting, that I know of. Maybe we should just
change the #ifdef to
#if BOOST_MSVC && BOOST_MSVC <= 1200
