Understood. Boost.Conversion has/had a nice directory structure to put these things in.

But for the sake of argument, what is the difference between an optional header dependency between Chrono and DateTime, and an optional header dependency from Conversion to both libraries? Is your objection because Chrono is mostly standard?

A few reviewers said they'd rather see individual libraries implement their own conversions rather than putting them all in Conversion.
