It would be informative if you would expand your comments beyond one
word replies. Otherwise It is easy to misunderstand what you mean.

Most software packages require some kind of installation process. For
Boost, it has been the "Getting started" process documented on the web
site. With modularization, some of the details of "Getting Started"
will change. Why are you concerned that some of those installation
process details ensures that user and developer scripts and setups
continue to work?
