Marshall, this change was made on trunk 9 hours ago. That's not nearly
enough time for tests to cycle.

I'm not overruling you. Your decision stands. But in the future, we (the
release managers) really need to stick to the script. Changes must be
tested on trunk before they can be merged to release.

And a similar heads-up to all boost developers: code changes this late
in the game will not make the cut if they aren't tested.
