It only seems absurb because you've ordered things in a particular way.
It's important, I think, to separate making boost modular from choosing
the VCS.

If boost transitions to a new VCS before modularizing, then of course
every library will have to transition. It's one big repository.
There's nothing particularly absurd about this.

If bost modularizes first then I see no reason why each
library/subproject can't transition to a new VCS on its own time. Sure,
it will be a bit more tedious to work with more than one VCS during the
transition time but it certainly is doable.
