Hi David,

Thank you for the great document. It should help ease users into Boost.
  I just have a couple of suggestions/comments.

In Section 4, would it be more intuitive to list those libraries that
are header-only? The topic heading is "Header-Only Libraries," but the
list is non-header-only libraries. Also, in terms of deciding if they
need to compile boost, having a list of libraries that *don't* require
compilation might be more useful.

In Section 6.3, the Unix command line is missing --toolset. Some of the
comments in that section (specifically the Note) imply that --toolset is
mandatory. Is it not needed?
