You may find it a silly argument, and it goes back to these dependency
graph discussions. If you look at the dependency report, like this one
It says Boost.Core is level 2 (so, fairly primitive) while Boost.Move is
Level 6. If you make Core depend on Move, it is not that primitive anymore.
Of course, the idea with improving swap is sound. I just thought I would
bring it up.
