Does boost have a mechanism (compilation flags, auto-defined macro,
etc.) to mask `std::auto_ptr` usage ?

Note that the situation isn't quite as simple as replacing
library-internal use of `std::auto_ptr`. For example, in case of
Boost.Python we also need to specialize templates so users can continue
using `std::auto_ptr` in their own code, unless they explicitly (using
macros) or implicitly (using modern compilers) disable such
backward-compatible support. I suppose there are other Boost libraries
in a similar situation.
