My modified version of bcp does all of the above as it copies a subset
or all of boost into a new location. It has never been used in
production, however I am convinced it is useful or usable if you like to
call it that. As it has not been used in production some more testing
is needed. My once urgent need faded of completly unrelated resons.

I have posted a bcp patch to the list at least once:

I did not find it on gmane or anything giving the attachments in any
usable form. So I can dig it out, zip down the bcp directory and repost
it if there is interest.

By the way, does anybody know if bcp -cvs work correctly after the move
to svn?
