Specifically, this means that

1. the headers live in libs/*/include (already implemented)
2. the test Jamfiles live in libs/*/test
3. the build Jamfiles live in libs/*/build

This is _almost_ the case today, and making this an official and enforced
policy will not be as disruptive as it seems. The only offenders are (I
think) libs/numeric/* and libs/function_types/build.

There's also

4. the documentation root is libs/*/index.html and the documentation lives
(as a general rule) in libs/*/doc/html

which is a bigger change as currently some libraries place there
documentation in $BOOST_ROOT/doc.
