Nice point. I think I agree. If that's the case, isn't it advantageous
then that younger (less stable) boost sub-libraries have a more frequent
release cycle? What if, in addition to a standard boost release, we have
individual, smaller module/library releases? A user may pick up an
individual release or simply wait for the next full boost release.
