For reference, there is this pull request:

with the relevant discussion.

To my understanding, 1.56 will be a non-modular release which means that the
distributed archives will include the complete boost/ directory along with all
libraries. Therefore users won't need to invoke 'b2 headers' themselves to be
able to build and use Boost. Is my understanding correct?
