I want to remind you that this started with "The requirement that these
libraries not include a 'CMakeLists.txt' as part of their Boost
distribution creates a maintenance burden for authors or otherwise hurts
usability of the independent distribution."

But now it is obvious Hana will need two CMakeLists.txt and somehow this is
not "a maintenance burden".
