Do you expect everyone who's ever developed a boost library to look? There
is only one person qualified to comment on the patch you posted. What if he
doesn't happen to be among the lookers?

If there are only a few libs involved, separate postings per lib is better.
If there are lots of libs involved, a note like "Whole library patch:" in
the subject would be helpful.
Hopefully, the latter will be rare.
