Hmmm - I do remember getting that impression though it may not have been
explicitly stated. My reaction was to point out that we didn't have to
address this issue until we actually had a real CMake alternative for
Boost. I think this got us over the hump to where could find some
common ground on something that would move us forward. Of course I
don't remember every word and detail now. But I believe that my
original summary captures the essential sense of the mercifully short
and in my view productive meeting.
