I think you are right about the global replace. We should really move to
the more correct "boost/..." form, and then document that as the "boost
way". But not right before a release! Also, before committing the change
to CVS, I'd like to make it to my working copy, and then try the Win32
regression test to make sure it doesn't break with some compiler. (My
memory was the reason we started with the <boost/...> form was some broken
Win32 compiler, but I don't know which one.)
