Very problematic, IMO. The implementations are so fundamentally different,
that there isn't much opportunity for reuse, except maybe small things, like
BOOST_TYPEOF_UNIQUE_ID() or converting "unsigned int" into "unsigned_int"
for the purpose of handling integral template parameters.

Also please imagine the review of such a unified library. Reviewers would
be forced to simultaniously judge two totally different, even alternative

Please correct me if I am wrong.
