1. People have vast quantities of legacy BCB code. They may like
    to improve their code with Boost.

2. BCB is still (IMHO) best C++ tool for GUI applications, despite
    its bugginess.

3. It is far from clear if there will be new Borland C++ compiler at all.
    Borland may decide to drop out of C++ market completely - it may
    be waste to spend effort with beta until things get clear.

IMO there should be no discouragement against BCB and if it
is possible to support it reasonably, it should be done.
