It strikes me that Boost might run into messy config transition issues as
Borland moves from one front end to another. OTOH, Borland has probably
worked to minimize transition problems.
It would be great if Boosters who care about Borland could try the 6.0
preview against the Boost regression tests to see what issues turn up.
