well, a boost libray is not `finished' when coding/documentation is done, but
when the actual code becomes part of boost. so even if a student has the
ambition of finishing coding/documentation/examples/benchmarks, the work is
easily lost.

but maybe it would be a good project to finish a library from earlier years,
including the review at the end of the gsoc period (maybe with the mentor as
review manager).
