You could do that, and it simplifies things considerably (although it
doesn't allow you to link 03 with 11.)

But if you do that, what's the point of having separate CXXD macros per
component then? You only need one, and the whole CXXD library collapses to a
single `namespace cxxd = std|boost` directive.
