It's fragile at the user's site. E.g. if a user uses two libraries that
happen to #include two different Boost.CGI (tentative name :) headers
then things break horribly. Of course, you could blame those libraries
for their leaky abstractions, but the root cause is that you needlessly
gave people a gun to shoot themselves in their feet.
