You may be underestimating the amount of effort required to help make a
library Boost-ready :) I think this is project has the potential to yield
good results for Boost. Obviously, the library wouldn't be reviewed for a
year or so, but with the new distributed development model, that may be less
of an issue.
Also, if accepted, there's nothing to prevent you from expanding the scope
once your mentor feels that you've completed your core goals.
