It's trivially simple, it has no external dependencies, and it works
perfectly well for our (very limited) requirements.

Sure, it was written a while ago.  It could now be re-written in a more
modern style.

As it happens, I'm currently working on improving code coverage
throughout Boost Math, and when I see a C++03-ism that's no longer
required I'm replacing/removing it as I go along.  But here's the thing,
*I don't go looking for work* there are better things to do, and if I
were to rewrite all my code each time a new standard came out, then I
would literally never get anything useful done.
