That's my preference too, so since we aren't limited by filenames, here
is a more explicit set (taking into consideration comments from Doug and

BOOST_NO_DECLTYPE // no decltype
BOOST_NO_LONG_LONG // no [unsigned] long long type
BOOST_NO_RVALUE_REFERENCES // no r-value references
BOOST_NO_STATIC_ASSERT // no static_assert
BOOST_NO_VARIADIC_TEMPLATES // no variadic templates
BOOST_NO_SCOPED_ENUMS // no enum class
BOOST_NO_RAW_LITERALS // no raw character or string
                                         // literals
BOOST_NO_UNICODE_LITERALS // no Unicode literals
BOOST_NO_UNICODE_CHAR_TYPES // no char16_t or char32_t
BOOST_NO_DEFAULT_FUNCTIONS // no = default functions
BOOST_NO_DELETED_FUNCTIONS // no = delete functions
BOOST_NO_CONSTEXPR // no constexpr

Iff voted into the WP:
BOOST_NO_CONCEPTS // no concepts

I'll do BOOST_NO_SCOPED_ENUMS, to make sure I've got the config process
right, and then work on the others as time permits.
