This is slightly off-topic but I think that Boost would have been much
better collection of libs if from the beginning it had adopted a
policy of placing as much code as possible in cpp files. Besides the
simple fact that this approach would have drastically reduced the
amount of code visible to users, it would have also affected the way
libraries are designed.

If anyone cares whether a library is header-only or not, they need a
better build system. :)
