Boost :

Dear boosters,

Again, I'm pretty frustrated that some libraries have source files that
need to be compiled separately (using bjam).

I was thinking that we could have a directory '/boost/impl', and each
library that has sourse files could have an .hpp file that includes all
of its source files (that would normally need to be compiled separately).

This way, any user, even not having bjam, can include the implementation
of a library, as simple as:
// this is included in ONLY one source file
#include <boost/impl/filesystem.hpp>

As a regular user, I'd rather have the above, than having to use bjam to
build a library.

If people agree, I volunteer to create the /boost/impl directory for all
the libraries that now need to be compiled separately, somewhere this week.
