We have discussed this a lot of times. The file will be located in the
same way when you use the complete Boost. The documentation could
include a note explaining where you can find now this little sub-module.
So I don't see how this split will compromise the component re-usability
and why this could mean code duplication.

Please, could you elaborate?
