>It also breaks backwards-compatibility, which was previously considered
How so - the scheme was designed to be completely transparent and backwards
compatible for existing users: config.hpp will by default include the
forwarding headers that then include the appropriate mini-config header.
The option is to use the macros (or include paths if you prefer - that
option is also still available) to short-circuit the forwarding headers, or
to forward to your own custom config header. I accept that it may be less
aesthetically pleasing though.
