Tom's observations are just that, observations. In my experience, they
are correct. It doesn't mean that actionable proposals are practical
or possible.

Frankly, I couldn't care less if a particular team uses Boost or not,
unless I am writing code that they use. And then I keep my fingers
crossed that I will be able to use shared_ptr at least. :)
