Is it alright to discuss what format the Boost files should adhere to,
since this affects all of us updating and committing to CVS? Or, will I
be banned from posting for this question?

Or, maybe the format is not up for discussion, it is one of those things
"that just are"? Either way is fine with me, although threats of being
banned from the list for discussing Boost-specific indentation feels a
bit awkward.
