That and functionality. If my static library is tested against 1.34, I
can only support it with 1.34. Changing a library like Boost which is
all over the place in some code bases requires a new testing cycle. God
help you if your tests miss some edge case that is now relevant after
upgrading to 1.35 b/c of a third-party component.
