Subject: [boost] [Git] Modularizing Boost libraries with sublibs

While adding Boost.ODEint to the modularization manifest, I realized some
inconsistencies about sublibs.
The directories in "libs" usually contain one library each. In this case,
we move the content to a dedicated Git repository. Some directories however
(algorithm, numeric) host multiple libraries. How should we treat them?
Move each one to a dedicated Git repository, or leave them grouped together?
What's currently inconsistent, is that "numeric" is split into individual
repositories, while "algorithm" is not.
Further, I saw that the Git submodules of numeric's sublibraries are
generated in "libs" rather than "libs/numeric", which is wrong. However,
before I fix it, we need to decide whether these individual submodules
should be individual or not.
