regardless of the details, just the look of the diagram is pretty
intimidating. On the the other hand, once you the tools, scripts, etc
installed, it's just a matter of calling boost build so everything is
hidden. This makes it pretty simple ... until it doesn't which is just
about always.

I actually like the whole system and I think it's pretty well suited to
boost. BUT, the combination with boost build and the desire to hide all
the complexity makes it more difficult to use rather than easier. I
think if we could work on this, we might persuade developers to stick
with it rather than looking for alternatives.
