OTOH, it might not always be achievable.
For boost 1.31 we are having an interface breaking change to the
iterator_adaptors, and not all compilers pass all tests with the new
While this may not be a problem for the iterators library (it is
effectively new) it may have a knock-on effect on any other boost
libraries implemented on top of it.
The principle is a good one, but I be prepared to make a few allowances
in the practice.
