Subject: [boost] Where is boost/detail/limits.hpp used?

I'm playing with a dependency checker I wrote that tells me what Boost
module depends on what. Starting with the basics:
Dependencies for config:
A dependency from config to detail is not a good thing because detail
depends on too much.
boost/detail/endian.hpp is now only a forwarding header to predef, so it
could and probably should be moved to predef, which seems to depend on
But I was wondering what in config uses endian.hpp. Turns out the only use
is in boost/detail/limits.hpp, a file that has been put into config for some
reason. I can't find anything in config or in Boost that uses this file.
What is its purpose?
