Yes, for sure. But first I wanted to let the developer's list know in
case anyone spotted serious flaws in the procedure.

Interesting. You give the path as "boost-root" in the table, because the
patch applies to both boost/xpressive/detail/utility and
boost/xpressive/detail/utility. But then patch gets an error "can't find
file to patch at input line 5"

To work correctly, the commands needs to be:

      cd boost-root
      patch -p 2 <download-path/changeset_r48141.diff

Hum... Won't that set of commands work for all patch files? That would
simplify the instructions and allow dropping the Directory column from
the table.

I'd appreciate it if several people would try that on their systems and
verify it works.
