The google style guide forbids the use of Boost in general with a very
few exceptions. Among those is:
"The part of Polygon that deals with Voronoi diagram construction and
doesn't depend on the rest of Polygon"
In view of that, I think it makes little sense for the Boost developers
to adhere to the google guidelines, at least until they condescend to
admit the Pentagon as well.
