At the moment I have no idea yet how a standard module implementation would
work in practice. Trying to use Boost with the Clang (pre-standard) module
implementation generally runs into two issues: headers that aren't
standalone, and ODR violations (usually caused by inconsistent macro
You also need to mark headers that are included multiple times (as part of
file-based PP iteration for example) as "textual", but the standard impl
probably won't need it.
Someone needs to try it and see, I suppose.
