I hope that does not mean the Boost release itself would have to contain a
Windows executable for the purpose of finding VS.

Maybe by the next release the problem that would need solving isn't "How to
find VS on a user's machine" but instead "How to find vswhere.exe on a
user's machine".

I wonder if the suggested solution[1] to that problem would also involve
iterating through drive letters A through Z...
