We have a lot of top-level headers, so I'm leery of adding more.
Looking at the list of headers is a common way (for me) to find
something I'm looking for in a library, and the list of headers we have
is quite daunting. I've heard from several people that the sheer size
of Boost is getting daunting, and this is one place where we might be a
little more picky in the future.
