Yes, I think this is what the author means. I think in the old thread
2002 someone misunderstood the library and compared with BGL, which
probably confused many. It is not for graphs but storing and querying
tree-like data. One of the many apps where this data structure is
useful is as a way to store parse results that can later be queried
(e.g. DOM tree)

His implementation of a n-ary tree data structure has been used by a
few apps already and there would be a mutual benefit if it becomes
part of boost
