Perhaps segregate the material in a Compatibility Library. Directory
location root/boost/compatibility/ for headers and
root/libs/compatibility/... for everything else.
Say up front in the index.html file that we hope these libraries can be
removed at some time in the future. But that until standard library
suppliers become more standard conforming, we supply workarounds which
allow Boost to be used on otherwise non-conforming platforms.
