Comment (by neilgroves):

 The procedure for deprecation is applied for public documented parts of
 Boost APIs. The functions to which you refer where not part of the public
 documented interface. We discussed this here:

 I received strong feedback that the pop_front and pop_back names were
 highly confusing. David Abrahams proposed changing the names to drop_front
 / drop_back. As I mentioned in my previous discussions I was actively
 working on refining good Concepts that would incorporate some of the
 valuable work by Alexandrescu.

 You will find that the function pop_front simply needs to be renamed to
 drop_front and that pop_back needs to be renamed to drop_back. No
 functionality has been removed. No public documented features have been
 broken to the best of my knowledge and belief. The synopsis for
 contains the drop_front, and drop_back member functions. The drop_back and
 drop_front member functions are therefore new public and official
 functions to replace the undocumented pop_front, pop_back, advance_begin.
 I added a new unit test and brought the functionality up to the standard
 of the other public functions.
