Maybe rgis?

I can imagine one could have libraries that depends on well-defined *parts* of other libraries (but not all of it), and that those parts can be called modules. One would not call such a part a library -and also not list it on the public website as a boost library- because its functionality to specific / narrow. For developers is should have a clear identity and not break dependent libraries when refactoring.
