You want to test your code in the same environment that has generated the
bug report. Since so much of Boost is header-only and inlined into your
code, the two are irredeemably intertwined.

It's not that using the system-installed or user-installed Boost wouldn't
work, it would, that's just a different workflow and a different scenario.
It's a difference in philosophy and the two schools of thought don't seem to
understand each other.

Plus, it's just plain easier to tell people "`git clone --recursive
my-wonderful-repo` and run CMake."
