value_init is still in Utility, I think.

On the one hand, test duplication wastes resources.

On the other, I prefer leaving the old tests there for a release or two, to
be on the safe side, because it'd be possible for the new tests to diverge
and no longer test previously valid functionality. (An obvious example would
be testing boost/core/header.hpp instead of boost/utility/header.hpp.)
