The only troubles I got trying to write a Boost-like libraries is the
excessive NIH syndrome. Tools like btool and quickdoc, which are a pain to
use and are no better than the competitors. If these tools were designed
without the assumption that you have a Boost tree lying around just to use
them, the barrier would be lower.

But that's just my opinion. Better collect the opinion from current Boost
