In release 1.75 Math had over 20 dependencies on other Boost libraries,
primarily to support C++03. Now that C++11 is the minimum standard in
Math it is possible to create a version that can be consumed in
isolation. To this end a small subset of MP11 functionality was needed
to break all the dependencies on MPL and MP11.
