FYI - I generally discourage the definition of "convenience headers"
such as used above:

I prefer to include just those specific headers that I'm using. Yeah -
it's "inconvenient" but it gives me fine control and visibility over
dependencies and helps minimize compile times. I have to say I've never
had a complaint with compile times in general with C++. I think it's at
least partly due to this practice and approach. It also might be due to
the fact when I first learned computer programming, one passed a deck of
cards across a counter and came back later to see the print out - a 12
hour turnaround! So I might have a different perspective.
