You can go ahead with these changes as far as I'm concerned, except that
there's no need to move empty_deleter.hpp to core.

In the lightweight_test documentation, it needs to be said that the intent
of report_errors() is to be returned from main(). We can add a minimal
example, too. Something like

#include <boost/core/lightweight_test.hpp>

void sqr( int x ); // should return x*x

int main()
    BOOST_TEST( sqr( 2 ) == 4 );
    BOOST_TEST_EQ( sqr(-3), 9 );

    return boost::report_errors();

ref's documentation is currently in libs/bind/doc/ref.xml, in BoostBook (?)
format (it wasn't converted by me.)
