Excuse me, but wouldn't it be better to reserve the sandbox (or whatever other
repository/area) for candidate libraries and keep them separate from this kind
of work?

While we're at it, I understand the desire of better separating each candidate
library/sandbox project than they were in the SF repository, but wouldn't a
structure as close as the official Boost tree help avoid having to change one's
library from "sandbox" style to "official" style?

I'm asking because I find that there are things in the Boost environment that
work automatically if you have a boost/your-library - libs/your-library
structure which are harder to do with a different directory tree.
