I don't know. If I can get something together that boost.devel readers
generally approve, I will try to push it to Redhat. In the past, I have
not had good cooperation, but we'll see.

Good idea. I think probably make debug version separate. I don't know how
to do that, though. rpmbuild automatically creates -debug versions, so
I'll have to learn how I can control that process. I don't think separate
-mt version is needed - that would be inconsistent with other common libs.
