I would like a "/src" directory with the mandatory *.cpp files in it. It
should have the same subdirectory structure as the corresponding *.hpp files
in the "/boost" directory. This way, you only have to enter two directories
into your compiler's search path to use Boost. (Using "/libs/libname/src"
would be a nightmare; you would either have to specify each individual
sub-library you anticipate using, or specify the parent "/libs" directory
and risk conflicts with the non-mandatory source files.)
