As promised:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3512486/boost_branching_model.pdf (82 kB)

Note (1): my depiction of the current Boost workflow might be
inaccurate. If you see a way to improve the image, please go ahead or
let me know what needs to be changed.

Note (2): to assist those who might want to make derived works, I also
made the original SVG file available. Please note that the work is
licensed under CC BY-SA (refer to the file for a URL).
The file may contain parts that are encoded in extensions to SVG that
are specific to my editor (Inkscape); if the file doesn't work with
your own editor, let me know and I'll produce a "neutral" version.

Note (3): while this image helps to explain my point in [1], it turns
out from [2] that I didn't actually address Daniel James' point. I'll
return to the testing issue in a new reply to [2].

HTH,
-Julian
