My point was that if you are a grunt-class programmer, your project lead may
not have precompiled the boost header you need. There are two possibilities:
either the project lead dutifully includes every header you ask for, gets
bored, and adds all of boost (now the granularity doesn't matter); or, the
project lead ignores your 'add header' requiests, so you're back to no-pch.
