Sadly, many boost libraries aren't actively maintained. If you really
want to evolve your library in a non-backward-compatible way (and I
don't dispute your right to do that, or begrudge you for it), then you
should to have a plan for what to do with those libraries. You may have
to make the necessary changes yourself.
