The difference between "Boost is moving to CMake" and "Boost is dropping
support for C++03" is exactly that the former means that we'll do something
(unclear what), whereas the latter means that we'll stop doing something
(maintain C++03 compatibility).

There's nothing to be done first, in other words. This is a legitimate,
proper announcement.
