We are not springing any major changes just yet. Nothing is in the master.
This appeared in develop partially because I forgot we need these
workarounds and partially because I do not have access to setup with c++03
anymore, so everything just worked for me.

Sooner rather than later we should have this discussion and setup timeline.
IMO it had very little sense to continue to maintain c++03 workarounds.
Boost code should be an example how modern c++ libraries should look like.
And c++03 compatibility is directly in a way of this goal.
