1. C++03 is exactly as old as Visual Studio 2003 is.
2. I was not asking you about your opinion. I was asking about your
_knowledge_ of user demands.

Well, the user demands is not the only reason for the Boost community
decisions. But it is important.
Other reasons are:
- code clearness
- ease of development
- runtime performance
- ability to test the Boost libraries with the compiler

PS. What would you say if the survey showed that nobody really needs the
C++03 to be supported? I think that such results are possible in the
not-so-distant future.
