The current system works well:

* It avoids putting an apparent boost stamp of approval on libraries that
are nowhere near ready for prime time.

* It allows all boost members to post files whenever they want to, without
the hassles of CVS write access, and without depending on or bothering a
CVS administrator.

* It acts as a motivation for boost submitters to finish their libraries
and get them formally reviewed.

So I'm not in favor of changing that procedure.
