The one thing I would argue against would be the disappearance of the
existing C++03-supporting Coroutine. I understand the quality-of-life
improvements that C++11 brings for a library developer, but I would hope
that the existing Coroutine wouldn't be removed from the Boost
distribution. One of the past releases had issues with the immediate and
mostly silent deprecation of the coroutine class interface from the
previous version, so I thought I would note my request that something
similar doesn't happen to today's Coroutine.
