I've argued against that one because a proposed library can be rejected or can languish in the queue. If the library isn't accepted, then the author must take positive action to remove the close association that logo creates, though I admit that logo does not imply acceptance by Boost.

I'll leave that to others with more information to make a good decision.

The original "powered by" should be with the others, but there should be a simply means, from the web site, to grab HTML to embed in a web site plus the logo to copy for inserting into an application or library's documentation.
