Luckily, parts of boost move to the std namespace and therefore have a chance to be split into include files and libstd implementation files.
I'm starting to like Jeff's BOOST_ALLOW_ALL_HEADER_WITH_SYSTEM_INCLUDES. It's more work for boost developers but it would simplify an integration with the standard C++ library.
