As I said, I want my checked out copy of Boost to be ready for
development. That's what I use it for, right? I have no use in having a
particular revision checked out because if I want to test my code, I
want to test it against the actual state of Boost. If I want to modify
some code (mine or not) I want to be able to commit and not remember
whether I'm in a detached state or not.
