Yes. I am currently working with my college to find out if there are any
such issues that might come up. I have to turn in a project description in a
week or so, and in the following review process, these matters should

Though I haven't checked personally (And I will do that.), I know several
open-source projects have been run as bachelors thesis(es?) at my college
before, so I would imagine a boost project should be possible.

Good point. I have not yet decided if I should make a connection between the
actual review process and the thesis itself. I will probably end up with the
thesis being a paper and library that could then be submitted to boost (but
not required to) when it is completed. I would like to do the the
development within the boost community though, so a total decoupling from
boost would probably not be such a good idea either.

Patience. ;)
