Well, I'm not going to name names when anyone interested can search
this list's historical archives for when people complain loudly about
changes. There is a library whose internals have seen a lot of recent
and radical change, and it regularly breaks AFIO. I'm not alone in
experiencing such breakage, but personally speaking I support such
changes as they are a positive thing, even with the extra work they
cause me in keeping up.

I would call it a *consequence* of the trust given to Boost
developers. They earned that trust by achieving passing peer review,
a no small feat.
