When Boost started ten years ago, a well-know software guru predicted it
would never go anywhere because software developers wouldn't be able to
get along together, and would always be forking the code and fighting
among themselves.

The Boost Community has in fact done just the opposite. We know there is
great strength (and better quality software) in working together,
sharing, and acknowledging contributions.

So I'm really happy that cpp-netlib and Pion are joining their efforts.
The net effect (pun intended) is very likely be a stronger networking
protocol library.
