Thanks Beman. We pull the release straight from SVN (there's only a
couple of us using Boost so it shouldn't be too big a drain on bandwidth
I hope). I'm not sure how sensible that really is despite that though,
but it does mean that we have a script that will fetch and build Boost,
and do a few things so that we can keep multiple versions side by side.

For people just starting with Boost this means for Linux/Mac/Windows
they can just grab our scripts and have everything done for them whilst
they're doing something more interesting.

The scripts are available here:

I guess I should add a readme describing what happens as they go about
