Actually, I agree with this, but it also suggests that at some time in the
coming years boost devs will have to choose if they want the whole boost
"label" to be about C++03 or C++11.

Or maybe there can be a "superset" of boost (Boost++?) that would be all
C++03 and C++11 compatible libraries plus C++11 only libraries.

Anyway the problem of knowing what is acceptable in boost is expanded by
the new standard, and so far I didn't read any policy about it.
