Such forwarding headers would be a real boon as a separate Boost
library, if avoiding the unnecessary inclusion of standard
library headers is a compile-time performance win. Peter
suggests that it really doesn't matter much. I guess you'd have
to create them and run tests against a large body of code to see
what impact it actually has on build times.
