The mysterious disappearance of Jonathan Turkanis (not heard from here since
last October; home page says he's at UCB, but a directory search at UCB does
not find him) set me wondering about the risk of using Boost libraries.
Like iostreams, they are generally one-man works, which may be beyond an end
user's ability or remit to maintain. Even if the author does not disappear,
he may eventually lose interest or simply be too busy to maintain it
forever, so do Boost have any procedures in place for such eventualities?
