boost/detail/limits.hpp is almost never used nowadays. It's only
included from boost/limits.hpp, using:

# include <boost/detail/limits.hpp>
# include <limits>

BOOST_NO_LIMITS is only defined in 'boost/config/stdlib/sgi.hpp'. Does
anyone still use that configuration? I suppose it might also be
defined in a custom configuration or by a user. It's quite likely that
the header is incompatible with other STL implementations anyway. So I
suspect it's only effectively used in code that is already subject to
the SGI license (i.e. the header is only included when already using
the SGI libraries), although I don't know if that makes a difference
