The default vector.hpp header should be compatible with all versions <= 1.34.1.
The vector_135.hpp header would be compatible with 1.35.
(So I guess this is not quite analogous to shared_ptr_132.hpp).

I think you should only add a vector_135.hpp header to Boost 1.36 if anyone really needs it.
For instance if anyone has shipped code, that uses the 1.35 vector.hpp, to customers.
I do not need a vector_135.hpp header.
