Yes. I agree. I also thought that some small numeber of mosr widely used
components should constitute Boost.Core component. Boost.Signals I would
split though. It's special purpose (though generic) library.
Smart_ptr/config/utility/type_traits are good candidates for core.

Yes. I believe we will need to consider procedure for packaging of
independent library releases. This is a second stage though.
