There is deprecation in the standard if I am not mistaken. Removal is
also up to compiler vendors as we saw not so long ago with VS2017.

There is a bit a deprecation in boost, barely removal.

If we want higher velocity in boost with the same energy/effort, we
should reduce the mass. It is as simple as that.
