Exactly -- and this can be easily layered on by the library user. If the
library does it (like boost.serialization) then with the 'dll options' you get
all the stuff -- even if you don't use it.
I'll just remind folks that boost.process *is* a template library...so the
issue of it being 'template code' is relevant. System, on the other hand is
non-template code so the issues are different.
