Subject: [boost] C++11 and compilers not supported by vendors any more

I've got an almost ready patch for Boost.Any, that adds rvalues
support to it via Boost.Move.

But the trouble is following:
Current version of patch may (and would) break compilation on ancient
compilers, like MSVC6, BCC 5.5 and g++ 2.95.

It can be tuned, to work even on those platforms, but:
* I have no access to those antiquities, so it is impossible to run tests
* It will take huge amount of time, to make it work

What is the current policy in such situations (may ancient compilers
support be dropped)?

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
