I really like the new link colouring.

It seems to me that embedding links in continous text in a way that is a)
easy to ignore when you are reading the text and b) easy to find when you
are looking for the link, is essentially a hard problem. I would argue that
Beth has got about as close as we are going to get (although I believe Rene
objects to underlines).

It WOULD be really nice to get this in to 1.33, but on the other hand I am
not sure we have a consensus yet AND it is awfully late in the day to be
making /any/ changes to the release.

Final question: How do we go about establishing if we have a consensus or
not so that we can at least update the main boost website? (Even if we
can't include in 1.33).
