I built executables for distribution on Windows (ie in an installer), where I
provided both 32bit and 64bit versions of the program.

Being able to have both variants of the compiled libraries in the same directory
would have simplified the usage of Boost.

Given that 32bit versions of Windows are still rather common, I imagine this is
still a quite relevant scenario for Windows applications built with Boost.

Just my 2 cents :)
