I'd suggest that headers in the boost directory should only include a
single header of the same name (or maybe 'all.hpp') from the library
directory. This would ensure that they never change so they're never
an issue for version control. For an example, see boost/bind.hpp. The
only downside that I can see is that this might be a bit awkward for
doxygen documentation.
