If "he" is Joel, then I'd say yes. To be specific:

1) Ask for a phoenix review
2) Granted phoenix is accepted, it becomes a full fledged boost library
3) Merge phoenix and lambda codebase.
    - lambda will be lambda1
    - phoenix will be lambda2.
    - Provide version switches and include forwarding (ala Spirit2)
      such that old client code will remain as-is and new code can use
      lambda2 (aka phoenix)
