Am I correct in understanding that the purpose of this thread is not to
solicit instructions for how to extract a subtree with history into a
separate git repository, but rather what consensus and requirements are
to be applied to adding a new module and removing its functionality from
another module?

Is this not simply a matter of simultaneously applying existing
processes for consenting to a major change in an existing library and
accepting a new library into Boost?
