The general approach should be to leave the forwarding stub with
BOOST_HEADER_DEPRECATED in it for a release or two, allowing existing users
to migrate, then remove; but for this to work there needs to be an
alternative to which people can migrate. Do we have an equivalent of
lowest_bit in Boost.Integer? Is it just log2?
