Then the attempt to *annotate the conditional conversion to bool deprecated*

While it makes the people who love verbosity happy, it does so at a cost of
breaking perfectly correct, well-tested code, and I suspect a large amount
of code at that. Heck, it even breaks Boost code. I would guess that
filesystem, asio and dll are some of the biggest users of error_code, and
not only do users of those libraries regularly use "if (ec)", those
libraries themselves internally use the same construct.
