this should be considered as a new tool (and in addition it needs CMAKE
build). While I consider the modularization useful, I find that adding a
new build system to Boost will need some official maintainers of the
CMake files for each one of the Boost libraries until the library
authors have taken the time to be familiar with the new build system. Of
course, this will imply that we need regular testers for both build
systems which will be time consuming

Resuming, I think that we need a formal review for CMake build once it
is able to build the whole Boost libraries.

Is CMake build ready for review? If no, what is missing, not working
yet, ...?
