In which case the whole concept will diffuse as it will be no different
than "Powered by STL" or "Powered by IOStreams".

And, to be frank, as long as Boost libraries are *libraries* and not
frameworks or containers or application servers or whatever else that
actively drives the system instead of being a helpful utility, the whole
concept of being "Powered by Boost" is questionable.

"Boosted by Boost" would be much more relevant.

OK, that was a joke. ;-)
