It would be great to have tests on 'develop' which can show some of the
integration of Boost with Windows Store and Phone.

That's understandable. I am just concerned that the integration of Boost
with Windows Store and Phone be tested on 'develop' with some real
meaningful tests, as well as regression tested on 'develop' by someone,
even if it yourself representing Microsoft's efforts, before it is ever
merged to 'master' and becomes part of some future release of Boost or
individual Boost libraries. That is the normal workflow in Boost before
anything ever gets merged to the 'master' release.
