Ping... Any comments on this? It would be nice if people voice some
comments on this subject now. Instead of later when we would have to
move a bunch of directories around.

If I'm understanding you, and the KDE docs, correctly, what you want is
stable (full boost tree here)
devel (full boost tree here)
my_branch (full boost tree here)
cmake_a (full boost tree here)
cmake_b (full boost tree here)
boost_1_33_1 (full boost tree here)
boost_1_34_0 (full boost tree here)
xml (partial boost tree here)
explore (partial boost tree here)
xml_b0 (partial boost tree here)
explore_b0 (partial boost tree here)
xml_for_review (partial boost tree here)
explore_for_review (partial boost tree here)
That seems like a reasonable arrangement to me. It has the beauty of
being easy to explain, and it's not too far off from what we have now.
The one drawback I can see is that one common case, of updating
boost/stable and boost/devel can't be done in one go. But I think that's
a reasonable aspect to give up (not that we had it in the first place)
since hopefully working with both at the same time will be an infrequent
(**) I'm ignoring the website tree because it's not the same kind of
beast. Since it only has to deal with two versions, and doesn't need tags.
