IMO, the Boost.Range versions shouldn't go into the c++11 file.

Could a Boost.Move emulation help here?

I would create a std_2011.hpp file.

In addition if this is not too much work I will find very useful to have a
kind of C++11 standard that uses std instead of boost as it was done for


We could do this way for all the standard files for which Boost provides a
c++11 compliant implementation or a c++03 emulation.
