How about for 1.56 (1) Removing TR1 from the regression tests, (2) Adding a
release note deprecating it now with intent to remove from Boost in 1.57,
(3) ditto in the TR1 docs.

If you are OK with that, or something similar, we should also post the plan
on the developers page so others will see it and can comment.
