I rather like the idea of using a rocket, because it symbolizes the use
of Boost to launch C++ library proposals into the standard.
What about some variation of this for it? The rocket is intended to
look a bit like the space shuttle's SRB's.
Modifications might include strapping the upper arc of the "C" onto the
rocket, adding a pinch of detail to the rocket, or adding "boost" onto
the rocket in some way.
