See to get an idea of how
big a job this was. The commit list is endless.

Dave and Daniel deserve special thanks for carrying this project through!

What is the story on branches and branch names? The Boost.System
release branch is there, but shows
34 branches, and it looks like most of those are branches for other
libraries that happened to include a Boost.System component. I suppose
Git has a way to blow the unwanted branches away from the system repo?

How close are we to being able to experiment with modular boost? Do we
know what the updated instructions are?

Many thanks,
