Subject: [boost] A few more critical dependencies
From: Peter Dimov (lists_at_[hidden])

At present, we have three dependencies that we can easily cut and doing so
will be very beneficial:
1. type_traits now depends on utility only because
Since declval.hpp itself depends on type_traits (add_rvalue_reference), it
can't go to core and the most logical place for it is type_traits itself.
2. utility depends on iterator because
boost/iterator.hpp can be moved to core in all its former glory (and
probably replaced by a one-liner, using std::iterator.)
generator_iterator.hpp perhaps needs to be moved to iterator.
3. mpl depends on detail because
That last one is just because lightweight_test.hpp hasn't been removed from
Detail yet; let me know if I should do that.
boost/detail/endian.hpp is just a forwarding header that includes
<boost/predef/detail/endian_compat.h>. We should move it to Predef.
