yes, of course :)
Question was related to move-semantic of std::list itself (like
boost::container::list also has move-constructor (like std::list in
C++11) which works in all C++ ISOs, with help of Boost.Move.

Yes, instead of using Boost's substitutions for C++11, it is possible to
refactor code for removing need in these new features.
But obviously that would take more time than just replacing std:: with
boost::, that why I am asking.
