I had more specific thoughts on this but as it became clear that this
would be significant issue, I deleted them from my post to avoid
confusing things.

This is the essential thing to me. I want to pick and choose
which libraries I want to download and install (subject
to requirements for pre-requisites) the combination of libraries
I want to install.

Also, I absolutley need to have library
by library usage/download statistics.

Basically, I want to eliminate the requirement that all boost
developers use the same repository/system. It can be
just as well left up to the developer which/what to use.
