Yes, thank you!

Exactly that's the problem I'm trying to solve with the Boost17. The
problem becomes much bigger, when the Boost library becomes part of the
iterface. For example, Boost.DLL needs shared_ptr and filesystem in it's
interface. Users suffer from boost::filesystem and boost::shared_ptr if
their projects use C++17 std:: alternatives.
