Well, support for u16string and u32 string has been delivered long time
ago, so removing them seems not an alternative, or is it?

I have proposed a patch to Boost.Config that I expect will be available
for the next release. The case where this is needed is a corner case
IMO, as the user is using c++11 without a c++ standard library. I know
clang is the typical example, but the user can install libc++ which is
also free.
