I hope "making it part of a prestigious group" isn't the rationale for
any of the boost inclusion proposals; oddly enough, a few days ago I
was discussing with a friend who also is a boost member, and we
identified this as a possible cause for the lack of maintenance that
some boost libraries are experiencing; if you see inclusion as a sort
of "award" then once you get the library accepted you have no more
"goals" to pursue and likely lose interest in your creature.
