It was my proposal to put it under <boost/functional/hash.hpp>,
on the following rationales:
 * TR1 hash is located on <functional>
 * When John Maddock's Boost.TR1 inititative includes Boost.Hash,
 the naming conventions set up by John suggest that the
 wrapping header will be <boost/tr1/functional>, which is
 more consistent with <boost/functional/hash.hpp> than with
 <boost/hash.hpp> (IMHO).
