Because consistency is for sissies :)

I think the way Boost.Function does it is more common in Boost (at a glance:
config, format, integer, multi_array, preprocessor, random, regex,
type_traits, and utility all do this). I read it as "boost/xyz.hpp" pulls in
the entire library, whereas "boost/xyz/foo.hpp" and "boost/xyz/bar.hpp" pull
in specific features of the library.
