It's not exactly easy to keep a single tree along with testing proposed
libraries. I tend to keep a full checkout of Boost CVS and put proposed
libraries into separate directories. When testing the proposed libraries,
make sure to #include from the proposed library's path _before_ the main
Boost CVS checkout.

I have no idea how this would interact with the build system, but I'm sure it
isn't pretty :)
