I have less than zero interest in forcing Boost libraries to adopt some
arbitrary C++ standard.

I can understand only one thing, as evidenced by my cxxd library which
nobody liked as a solution, that it would be helpful for a library which
uses a Boost library rather than the C++11 equivalent library to use the
C++11 equivalent library instead and therefore drop support for C++03.
Beyond that forcing some library to use some C++11 on up construct, just
to adopt some arbitrary C++ standard, is lunacy.
