Hi Michael,

Thanks for the feedback on the Boost libraries you are using.

For date_time, I made some changes to make it easier to contribute back to
Boost from what I originally had in the repositories. Initially by default
if you built on an Windows machine that supported store it would produce
both the store and desktop (existing) binaries. However this made
contributing back more complicated so I changed it to be opt in. Date_Time
doesn't use any banned APIs to my knowledge so you can just use straight
from the master or develop branch.

To try out my work for date_time, system, or any of the other libraries. You
will need at least the following:

    'winrt' branch from my Boost.Build fork.
    'winrt' branch from my Boost.Predef fork.

I don't have any trouble building Boost.System locally from my fork for
store or phone. Here is the command I was using: b2 toolset=msvc-11.0
