Well no I don't want to maintain it.... but logically a few of those headers
could be moved into config and their authors could become part of the Config
"team". Plus Boost.Config has mostly maintained itself recently, I'm hoping
that all the folks who have helped with that will join the Config team and
continue the good work ;-) Or else the much talked about "community" team
can have access to Config etc.

Cheers, John.
