You never know who is using the files outside the boost tree. Don't remove
them altogether just that. As a safeguard, you could put forwarding headers
into the Boost root instead of the old files. Those could be flagged to be
deprecated (add some warnings - see the boost/spirit.hpp forwarding header
for an example) and may be removed two or three versions from now.
