Sounds good.

Are there any particular algorithms you have in mind? We've been
slowly integrating contributed algorithms into the trunk. The
limitation has basically been that we need to find people with time
to review the algorithms, tests, documentation, etc. before merging
any code.

No, I doubt it. We've talked offline a few times about building
"version 2" of the Boost Graph Library, which would include many
cosmetic cleanups, simplified interfaces, and probably remove many of
the hacks for older compilers. Such an upgrade would be mostly
backward-compatible and would not need a re-review.
