Interesting question. I think there are two types:
* a library that's completely standalone -no dependencies to anything
boost- and requires C++11
* a library that's coupled to libs in boost, but one that doesn't compile
with a pre C++11 compiler.

The benefit of an aditional C++11 version of an existing lib would IMO be
decoupeling from dependency of other libs -like the first type-. The second
type is a rewrite where some dependencies to boost are replaces with C++11
dependencies for various reasons: perhaps less lines,or better
performance,or better maintainability..
