We tried to do that at one time, but gave up because it is a bit tricky.
Some absolute www.boost.org references are correct, such as to the LICENSE
file, so it isn't as simple as just searching for "www.boost.org/" in .htm?
I've just taken a look (using grep) at the CVS RC (not the tarball) and it
seems that while the problem does happen, particularly in spirit and graph
libraries, it isn't really horrible.
I'd say we can wait until after the release ships, then see if we can come
up with some logic that doesn't generate a lot of false positives.
