I think it's the same issue that has been described here:

I can create a pull request to fix this locally in ASIO, if there is a chance
to merge it into 1.56. But that will only fix this particular breakage; I
can't tell if there are other similar places.

I'm worried by Boost.Range abusing boost namespace and interfere name lookup
this way. A similar problem was with Boost.Iterator and I moved it to its own
namespace. I think the same should be done for Boost.Range.
