I'm not seeing this. The boost type signature includes two optional
type parameters. So the template signature (excepting namespace) is
identical between the std and boost versions.

I think I answered this. The standard version is subset of the Boost
version. The are compatible - but the boost version has additional
functionality which is more cumbersome to implement and requires more
investment of effort on the part of the user to understand. std
is a subset of the boost one.
