Boost should provide some sort of version control hosting for potential
Boost libraries. The sandbox has served that situation well and makes it
easy for library developers to test their library against a Boost
release/tree, such as the Boost trunk. Abandoning the sandbox does not
seem reasonable to me unless there is a better version control hosting
