I noticed at this year's C++ Now many more people were talking about
employing a full time permanent dedicated Boost infrastructure
engineer than previous years. I have no idea how that might work, let
alone who would have the "right" kind of personality to make it work.
Still, the cashflow is now there to achieve this, and that was always
historically the main showstopper.

One idea I think the SC should consider is a half time employment
with irregular grant based top ups, so 18 guaranteed hours per week
with extra hours paid per approved project specific grant.
