I'm a member of SOCI dev team for a few months and I can confirm we're
seriously considering Boost direction :-)
In most of discussions on the soci-devel list, there are some
references to Boost policies, guidelines, submission, etc.

Just to tell a few secrets, we've changed SOCI building system to follow
Boost naming convention of libraries, after 2.2.0 release we're going to
create separate branch to put there SOCI boosification, etc.

So, I can say we're heading the Boost course.
