Perhaps it's another argument for truly-modular Boost, where you can
download individual libraries rather than a monolithic release.

I never really have any issues with including Boost code in desktop
build environments, but it becomes a harder sell when writing embedded
or cross-compiled code. (I usually still do it anyway, typically to
plug holes in the libc, but it requires more justification.)
