I gather that to use bind with the placeholders in the
boost::placeholders namespace you '#include <boost/bind/bind.hpp>'
whereas to keep the current usage of the placeholders being in the
global namespace you '#include <boost/bind.hpp>'.

I realize 'boost/bind/bind.hpp' is not documented, but maybe it should
be as a means of explaining the above. Would you field a PR on 'develop'
for that ?
