  It depends on the library. For Boost.Random, maintaining
C++03 compatibility is not a significant burden, and C++11
doesn't make much difference. Boost.TypeErasure, on the
other hand, is #ifdefed so heavily that it's essentially
two completely independent libraries that happen to share
the same API. Note that I do intend to remove the C++03
code path, when I get around to it, and this is entirely
consistent with Boost policy.
