That should not preclude configurator/all.hpp, even if all.hpp merely includes configurator.hpp. You can change boost/configurator/all.hpp should the need ever arise while boost/configurator.hpp won't need to change. That makes selective, local changes easier because they would be isolated to the configurator subdirectory.
