Yep .... Doh... two versions :-)
So to clarify ... Anything I put in the files section should (ideally) use
the boost namespace.

Now the next problem.

I have a library (my physical_quantities type) which I wish to distribute
outside boost. I am (funnily enough ) finding a lot of boost things useful.
For those that have the boost library there is no problem, but if I require
everyone who wants to try my library to download the boost library, its
pretty daunting (40 Mb dependency or so, install, point compiler at it). I
suspect that the number of users drops dramatically at that point. ( A major
user-group for my library I expect might be students who [if they learn a
bit of C++] could BTW use it to 'help' with their physics homework.,[ an
endeavor which I cannot,of course, approve under any circumstances! ]).

Ideally I would like a 'mini distro' from a 'boost supermarket', where I
could pick up the 'modules' I need and bundle them in.

Hows that for a problem :-)
