I was referring to the actual binaries that you get, I didn't even look at
the space needed to build. The reason I noticed this is because the Windows
binaries that I publish for public consumption doubled in size with this

I had already received comments that the boost binaries were too big, I'm
seriously worried that this further increase will negatively impact usage
of the entire boost library.

Maybe we need to look at making these the defaults. What do you mean by
"parsers" in this context, is this a core functionality of log? Sorry if
these are dumb questions, I haven't had a good excuse to dive into the log
library yet.
