Bugfixes (and new features, to a more limited extent) don't get backported.

If someone reports a bug in older Boost, generally the first response is
"use the latest Boost". Which is not an unreasonable response, but it
illustrates the problem with assuming that those using C++03 can just
stick with an older version forever.
