Dave and I suggested such a move some time ago.. When I noticed the
duplication when fixing some problems with the facet. And It was agreed
by Volodya and others on principle. Don't remember what the details of
some of the problems raised.

But I believe that making a new "boost/libs/detail" directory would
solve the problems I vaguely remember. -- I think something about where
to put tests and docs for it was a sited problem.

Sorry to be vague... But I can't seen to find the original thread,
stupid search engines :-(
