+1 - and I'm not in the Douglas one either :-(
Compiler and language changes are continuous, not strictly quantizable, and so Boost must continue
to track changes as is has from the start. C++ 11/14 will be followed by C++17 and C++2z ...
I'm entirely unconvinced that the concept of a step change to Boost 2.x is any help at all.
