That's a great work, thanks!

I was just thinking about the following features:
* It would be great to integrate such functionality into b2. So that
any user and distro builder can make its own installers for OS by
running command ./b2 installers
* Some Linux distros split Boost libraries into smaller parts:
libboost-dev (headers, static and debug libraries), libboost-doc,
libboost-thread (runtime library), libboost-* (some other runtime
libraries), boost-all.
* We may provide .torrent files (or magnet links) right on the website in Download section (like some Linux distros do) if
sourceforge can not store so many binary data
