There as a discussion before where a proposition was to have two high
versions of boost : 1.xx (like the current ones) that would be guaranteed
to work with C++03 compilers, 2.xx that would require C++11 compilers.
1.xx would contain all the libraries but the ones requiring C++11
2.xx would contain all the libraries but the but the ones that cannot work
on a C++11 compiler (I guess none) plus libraries (and versions of
libraries) requiring C++11.
Maybe 2.xx could even remove libraries that would be considered obsolete by
the new standard. That would be too much work I guess.

Or something like that.

I'm guessing it have been considered as not a good idea? Too much work?
