Exactly. The cost will only become to be appreciated when a release
containing the changes goes out. The majority of our users do not use the
trunk, do not try out a beta release, do not try the release candidates;
many of them nowadays don't even get Boost from us. There are also people
who are using (portions of) Boost on "non-supported" compilers. We only hear
from them when something breaks.
