I agree 100%. Also this is the approach which I recommend to my
students. Although my reasoning was a little different. I did not
focus on std:: implementation discrepancies between various vendors.
I rather emphasized fact that boost is always at least 5 years ahead
of the standard. And most likely you need a feature now, rather than
wait 5 years. Then in 5 years you have plenty of code which already
uses boost. No need to reorganize it now and switch it to std::
