Can you actually download a part of a git repository? If not, I think this
kind of defeats the modularization purpose, which is basically to reduce the
amount of code you need to download to obtain a minimal part of Boost. E.g. to
use Boost.Conversion you would still need to download the whole Boost.Math.
