OK, that makes sense. So sanbox projects become entirely independent
with the only dependency being some upstream boost version (which may
correspond to either a release or a development version).

Never mind. I was thinking of a mix of versioning tools used for sandbox
projects, boost trunk, etc., causing an unnecessarily steep learning
curve. But if individual projects are to be hosted separately anyhow,
that's much less of a concern (though it would still be useful to have
clear and up-to-date guidelines for directory layout, build system,
etc., to make it easier to merge to trunk should we ever get this far).
