I see this in the commit log for boost.filesystem:
Deprecated path construction/assignment/appending from container types.
Users are advised to use string types and iterators instead of containers
to construct/assign/append to paths.
In v4, the support for containers is removed.
This can't be right now, can it? Because std::filesystem supports path
construction from anything meeting the requirements of Source which is
kind of range-like. Boost.URL and its downstream libraries HTTP-Proto,
HTTP-IO, Websocket-Proto, and Websocket-IO are depending on the
container-based interface to achieve reasonably decent syntax and
semantics despite the limitations of the path API (which are the fault
of the standard and not Boost).
If std::filesystem::path supports container-based parameters to
assign() and append() then why is boost::filesystem::path removing it?
