Just for context: We recently had a discussion (with Niall) where the
idea of a "Boost distribution" came up. In such a scenario, Boost
libraries could still follow their individual release schedule, but
would be made available through a single distribution channel (which
could also assume some validation tasks to test inter-version
compatibility. I think this would be an interesting model to consider,
as it adds the best of both worlds: independence an autonomy of
projects, and convenience for end users.

Well, I beg to differ. It's the projects' maintainers / developers who
have to do the actual work, so ultimately it's their decision where to
put their effort.
