boost-1.41 doesn't contain memory_order_consume, in my use case,
boost.atomic does need memory_order_consume. so the boost.atomic
repository should provide an updated boost/memory_order.hpp, which is
not possible when using 2 svn repositories, is it?

- upcoming boost libraries using the sandbox layout do not provide the
boost upstream code
- svn doesn't provide local branches, does it?
- builing `out of place' is undocumented/ugly/hard to configure

you can find the boost.atomic code in helge's git repository:
