It seems there are two concerns here:

1. Providing an up-to-date "FindBoost" module with each Boost release
so that *users* who build their projects with CMake can easily find
the Boost dependencies, and

2. Allowing Boost itself to be built using CMake as an alternative to bjam

Do we need both, or is it possible to satisfy the majority of user
wants by implementing only number 1 above?
