Yes, I do think so. By default, the IDE creates *both* debug/release
configurations, so the default Build should match that. Even though
advanced users may want to turn of _SCL_SECURE for release, it's on by
default in the IDE, and a compatible boost release should be built by
default as well.

The typical developer will probably grab Boost, run the default build,
get Debug/Release and be able to get work done with that. As soon as he
requires _SCL_SECURE to be turned of in Release, dynamic linking or so,
the docs should tell him how to accomplish that, but for the sake of
getting started quickly the default (static) debug/release versions will
be enough.
