I'm really mystified by how almost any discussion on this list
eventually turn magically into discussions about tools. It's the boost's
community's main fetish.

What most people here seem to agree on is how hard it is for Boost to
change anything. So why don't we talk about the reasons for that, and
how to improve, rather than waste our energy on tool discussions ?
