Just to be clear.  I have *no* intention of making Boost a dependency, ever.

I am perfectly fine with users adding whatever dependencies they want for
their own projects but the VulkanSceneGraph will be focused on keeping the
dependencies to a minimum, Vulkan and C++11 (possibly later) and perhaps
native windowing.

If the standard committee do decide something is worth adopting from Boost
then at that time that I'll consider using that feature, but even then it
has to justify itself.
