The requirement for a C++98 compiler is a much weaker requirement than
C++98 compiler + working Boost. Boost is not tested on most of the
platforms that GCC targets. Also, Boost APIs are less stable than the
C++ standard library, so specific range of versions might be required.
I use Boost widely, but it is not appropriate in this context.
