Maybe they have to do with a nagging feeling that Boost Libraries don't
all have a canonical name, and even when it seems like they do, people
tend to call them whatever they feel like. Perhaps we should either
go with a numerical index (which the DBA in me prefers), or insist that
all libraries have a canonical name and that everyone use that name to
refer to it (perhaps to make it easier to filter messages containing
the name).
