Didn't the previous version of Boost.Fiber, used Boost.Context directly?

I have not see directly to the current implementation so I can not
argument on this, but IIRC, Boost.Context was born as the minimal
interface that allowed to build coroutines, fibers, ... on top of it.
Anyway, this is an implementation detail and only some performance
figures could guide.
