It is a giant PITA, partly because it is not modular. The git migration was
a migration to 100 fractured git repos, not modularized git repos.

If you want to modularize, then decide that that is a goal for Boost and I
will help.

I think at least one of the reasons my efforts did not get support from the
right people is that modularization is not currently a goal for Boost. Some
people in Boost think that modularization is already done. It is not.
