I worked hard to achieve the separation you're referring to. It doesn't
work to have a smooth transition across Boo-st-d because it makes the
"d" look like part of "Boostd". The "std::" is meant to be very subtle;
It emerges as a continuation of the shadow behind "Booost". To
demarcate the beginning of "std::", it becomes italicized there.
