Correction: I did not define anything about boost::core. I'm referring
to what is already the modularized layout, which afaik has already been
agreed upon and is somewhat inevitable. That is what should be
understood as the core library I refer to.
The contents of that library are somewhat orthogonal though:

Correct. I wrote as much before and linked to it in my original mail.
I also referred to that since then here in the mail you quoted:

Ok, now I'm certain I'm just repeating myself :). That's not useful.
