It's only possible if the trunk hasn't been too destabilized yet.

Anyway, it was only a half-serious suggestion. My point is that if people
have patches which make the difference between Boost working and not
working on a given platform, they should try to post them before we branch
for release. After a release branch it becomes increasingly hard to roll
fixes into the branch and still get them into the trunk correctly.
