I don't have much of an opinion one way or the other. Boost.Build doesn't
handle arbitrary sublibs at the moment very well, I think (numeric/* is
hardcoded) but this will need to be fixed anyway. This aside, if you go with
a sublib, it seems to me that it will be easy to move it into a proper
submodule at a later date if we so decide, unless I'm missing something.
