Subject: [boost] Debugger Visualizers discussion

There is project that contains a bunch of XML files. Those files can be
used to improve debugging on MSVC:
* using this project debug view of `boost::variant<int, float> i(1);` will
show `1` instead of raw memory and internals of boost::variant.
* optional<boost::container::string> will show string content or `none`
instead of ram memory and some unreadable internals
Maybe we should embed those files into the Boost? It would be great to have
some magic bjam command `b2 install-debug` after which VisualStudio becomes
aware of Boost classes.
Files for pretty debugging could be also written for GDB. Will it be useful?
