Thanks for your feedback, everyone!
To answer Glen Fernandes's question, I am not the official maintainer, just
a contributor who is willing to help improve a Boost library.
I've submitted a separate pull request that includes the C++03
workarounds. I did this in case our official stance for 1.70 is to keep
C++03 support, and also in an effort to ensure that the downstream
libraries, a few of which I also use, won't break (or at least won't have
their tests broken). Regarding Paul Bristow's input, it hasn't been a load
of trouble, but it was bad enough. I'll leave it up to the official
maintainer(s) to decide which PR to approve. That being said, should the
new PR be the chosen one, any new features I plan to add from that point on
will not include explicit C++03 workarounds.
