That said, TR1 support should have been deprecated and then subsequently
removed and documented in the release notes as it is a breaking change.
I don't think I was following closely during the time deprecation would
have occurred, so I can't say whether it happened or not.

Based on recent submissions I made to Boost.Predef and Boost.WinAPI, I know
that deprecation prior to removal is taken very seriously around here.
