Remove libraries? Current users of the to be removed library would be
delighted to learn that their code will no longer compile with the next
version of Boost. Deprecated libraries? Seems like a good idea, if the new
library offers a strict superset of the features of the old one. In reality
this will almost never happen.

Probably not, but why is this important?
