Only this: using-directives used to do namespace composition don't really
work, because various kinds of lookup don't treat the names transparently.
If that's what you've got (and I haven't looked at the code), you'd be
better off sticking this directly in namespace boost and doing away with the
nesting. Here's a previous conversation to that effect:
