<nod> I didn't notice that. An alternative to maintain backwards
compatibility is to change header and function names. But I noticed
those headers are from January 2014, released only in Boost 1.56. I
doubt the change will break much user code. If backwards compatibility
is not required we could somehow try to inform users that they should
not use it and replace it in Boost 1.57. That's something we should
decide ASAP. And release Boost 1.57 ASAP too ;-)

In any case I think some functions from current make_unique.hpp, like
"make_unique_noinit", can be useful, specially when allocating big
memory buffers of POD types users don't need to value initialize.
