If you can accept that all boost files are also world readable on your
machine then you can use scp's `-p' switch that will preserve the time
stamps and access modes. (Disclaimer: I never tested this feature with
a Windows scp client. And I don't have an SF account whence I didn't
try whether it actually works with the SF server.)
