Gennadiy, I really think you need to be more pro-active in tracking down
possible breakages, I used Boost.Math as an example because I have stalled
changes right now that I need to complete testing. But 10 seconds with grep
shows me that:

BOOST_MESSAGE is used 189 times in several libraries.
unit_test_framework is used in 48 files.

I'm sure there's more.... but I must go off and do something productive now,
