This is exactly what proposed Boost.APIBind is designed for: allow a
legacy Boost library to both exist as part of monolithic Boost, and
as a standalone library with no Boost dependencies (with the C++ 11
STL swapped in instead). Identical code base can do both targets.

Have a look at

Now Presentation on APIBind:

The video of that talk is probably also very useful to watch, but I
don't think they are posted yet.
