Even if no one writes an alternative implementation, it should be "good
enough". Otherwise, it can be an utility in Boost.Move as it previously
was in Boost.Interprocess.

Another issue is if we should put it into Boost.SmartPtr or not,
specially the documentation. To minimize th work we can add a small
section in Boost.SmartPtr's documentation that points to Boost.Move
documentation, as someone looking for boost::unique_ptr is likely to
start looking in Boost.SmartPtr.
