I've never understood your reluctance Peter to break the build of end
users where the change is (a) good for them and (b) find and replace in
files solvable within 60 seconds. I don't get the need to be
conservative on these sorts of build breaks.

The only way that such conservatism makes sense is if there is a
unrecompilable binary blob somewhere in this. Then I'd get it. But with
anything using Boost, that can't be the case. So I don't get it.
