If most Boost modules are independent (are they?), this process appears to introduce unnecessary coupling, rather like testing a bunch of unrelated feature branches together instead of validating and merging them one at a time as their individual developers feel they're ready.

Many Boost libraries are built on other Boost libraries. I believe
some of the referenced libraries are API-versioned. It would be
unfortunate if Boost produced a release that doesn't work out of the
box because library A has become incompatible with consuming library
