I'm currently standing up 0install feeds for modularized boost,

This is work-in-progress; installation doesn't complete because of the
many usage dependencies (other libraries you need in order to use
Signals2) that I haven't generated feeds for yet, but you can see it
beginning to work if you try it (and anyone who wants to help is most

The use of 0install makes modularization a non-issue where the DVCS is
concerned, so I truly don't think it's worth hashing over the different
ways you can handle this with Hg or Git or SVN.
