 It seems only logical to me to decrease coupling with other boost
libraries as time moves on, to use the std-equivalent of certain boost
libraries... Subtle differences exist (between std- and boost-versions of
certain libs), i.e. random, file-system and others... and this is a pita...
IMHO, boost libs that state that they are let's say C++14, should use
std::array, std::chrono, std::random (and std::function), etc... and
decrease coupling with other parts of boost...
