Subject: [boost] Macro fo rBOOST_NO_NUMERIC_LIMITS_MAX_DIGITS10 or use BOOST_NO_NUMERIC_LIMITS_LOWEST

I have recently used BOOST_NO_NUMERIC_LIMITS_LOWEST to act as a proxy for support of
numeric_limits<T>:: max_digits10 (as correctly suggested by John Maddock).
Do we need yet another new macro for this, say
or continue to use BOOST_NO_NUMERIC_LIMITS_LOWEST as a proxy.
I think the latter will suffice (despite its unfortunate name for this task).
But I think an addition to the configuration macro reference docs would be useful.
Perhaps in macro_reference.qbk
Static function `numeric_limits<T>::lowest()` is not available for use.
Also acts as a proxy for static const int `numeric_limits<T>:: max_digits10;` is not available for
I suspect there are also other additions that went with these two items, but I'm having a senior
moment about what they are ;-(
