I just noticed that, and will retract the suggestion :)

I'm more than willing to spend some serious time working on
Boost.Graph this semester - It won't be as much as I spent this
summer, but at least a couple days a week. Besides, the person
working on Boost docs for IBD was me.

Unfortunately, I've only taken a quick look at pBGL so I don't know
too much about it. Those improvements would have to be pointed out.
