In fact this is already on the trunk, so don't need any review. It is just
already accepted implicitly and used by other libraries on the trunk.

Just to remind, there was atleast one library that have removed its
boost::swap uses when merged to the release branch. Why this little utility
was not merged then?

There is nothing critical that needs the boost::swap inclusion. No I
definitiviely think that we need to *respect* the defined process. If we
want to change the process we can discuss this changes directly here, and
apply them when adopted.

We need just to wait three months for its inclusion.
