Unfortunately, we have no data either way.

I'm quite certain that library developers aren't our main audience.
Rather, I expect most Boost users are application developers. Most
applications are only built on one compiler per platform, since
you're not going to ship binaries built two compilers on the same
platform. Skimming through the "Who's Using Boost?" pages, I'm seeing
a bias toward applications.
