That depends on whether or not the user code depends on the boost types
which, as you know, work fine when compiled with a new C++ compiler.
Supporting old compilers is only part of the motivation, the other part is
supporting old user code; and it's safe to assume that for the user
switching from boost types to std types is very difficult.
