Or a 1.32.1... we haven't really done patch-level releases much, but
with so many months in between full Boost releases it might be a good
idea. I know that the libraries I work on go through a lot of changes
from release to release, but some users would benefit from getting the
bug fixes and nothing else.

If we could make releases less painful, we'd have a shot at making this
work. For now, I think I'll be providing some patches to the 1.32.0
