Personally I would prefer 14.10 (aka 1410) because of purely selfish
reasons. As it would mean Boost Predef already says that "14.10" is the
version. But otherwise I don't care what version number it is. I'm beyond
exhausted from dealing with VS version numbers. Which means..
1. For the beta the version is "14.10", aka "1410".
2. And we'll apply the Boost Config patch accordingly.
3. After beta everyone can fight over what the "real" version number should
4. Apply changes after enough people agree. And if that's fast enough.. We
can do another beta. Other we just wait for the release to have the change.
