I'd solve this by declaring Boost.Container to be C++11 and include
Double-Ended in it.
It's almost a decade since its publication so even conservatively taken
it is "old enough" to require it. And library maintainers are free to do

True. However I'm quite happy with C++14 so far and having to resort to
C++11 then is not that hard unless you need constexpr all they way down
and up.
And IMO Boost should provide extended support for older standards. So
I'd recommend going from C++03 to 11 or 14. The latter might be an issue
with older MSVCs which lack behind in 14 but are quite complete in 11.
But well...
