Filesystem trunk has now been merged into the release branch. Lots of
server errors, but it looks like the merge did take.

So for 1.46.0, V3 will be the default.

A lot of code will work with both versions. You can certainly #if on
BOOST_FILESYSTEM_VERSION, but if you are having to do that often,
please drop me an email with an example. I'm still open to adding
compatibility hacks if they are helpful.
