I do not see why a tool which manipulates the Boost tree totally outside
of git should not be part of the Boost tree. One thing ( manipulating
the Boost tree in some way ) does not preclude the other ( being part of
the tree ) in my mind. Clearly the Boost tree can be changed locally
outside of what git does in regard to version control.
