nope, it's not intended. The problem it seems that documentation build only picks stuff in include/boost/program_options/, but not
'detail' subdirectory, and that namespace, as well as the 'validate' function, are defined in there. It's sounds like historical
accident, as 'validate' is a function that is meant to be overridden, so at least some definition must be in non-detail headers.
