Is this a definite boost policy ?
I hesitated, and chose '#include "foo.h"' style in format's headers.
And I see that type_traits, shared_container_iterator, multi_array,
dynamic_bitset and any also use this kind of includes.

(I could not find a way to search the ML for potential past discussions
on this subject.. searching for 'include' obviously yields hundreds of
messages, while "" and <> do not work that well, as it seems search
engines never bother to provide a way for escaping special characters..)

(who hates search engines when typing "C++" in them)
