This is a bit too complex for my taste; we're supposed to be removing
complexity here, not adding it. :-)
The perfect scenario in my mind is that, to get a modular release, one
checkouts the appropriate revision of the source tree and runs "package.bat"
or "package.sh" at the root. (Everyone should be able to do that, not just a
Boost release manager; people should be able to prepare a modular boost
repository for their team or organization and hand their co-programmers a
copy of bpm that installs from it.)
Maintaining a shadow super-project doesn't fit into this picture.
