All build systems, heck all software, has "concerns".

The documentation is bad compared to what other documentation?

Prove that it wasn't a priority. Considering that the last Boost release
was delayed precisely to support MSVC building.

Again, prove it.

Prove that the build system is the reason Boost is "dying a slow death"?
For that matter prove that Boost is dying in the first place.
Note.. Yes I will keep posting in these threads in response to false
