Creating a version 2 that assumes C++11 is likely the best route for end
user experience, as it would create a clear boundary as to what they can
However, it would need to be done so that library maintainers do not have to
work on two versions unless they choose to do so.
Perhaps once the move to Git is done a Boost 2 super project could be
created, and libraries that require C++11 would only appear as sub modules
Then libraries that are not C++03 compatible (or depends on another that is
not) would be easy to find during testing since they will not compile.
However, IMHO, boost should move to a 2.0 version to advocate plain C++-11
without looking back to legacy compilers. As soon as the compiler landscape
evolves to support more an more C++11 features, everyone is able to benefit
from such a solution. The Boost 1.X line however should remain C++03
