It started to seem to me that the word Generic used for Boost
libraries has become redundant. Genericity of a library is a very
important aspect being verified during reviews, so perhaps it's correct
to assume all libraries accepted to Boost are generic (or at least as
generic as feasible to achieve for particular problem/domain).
