I didn't touch that macro, because I didn't think it was a C++11 one.
Looking back at the discussion from last month, I see a proposal to add a new macro named
BOOST_NO_NUMERIC_LIMITS_MAX_DIGITS10, and when John asked for a patch, Paul contributed some bits,
but not a complete patch; and no one else did.

I don't think that this is a rename job.
If I've misread the discussion (or misunderstood the situation), please let me know.
