We talked about this in the past, and it looks like sometime soon we will
have the resources to do just that (courtesy of Andrew Lumsdaine).
The possibility is real enough that it might be worthwhile for someone to
figure out just how such a Boost compile farm would work. There would be
Windows and Unix boxes available, with an array of compilers to suit. Any
