If a Boost review can be of the form "+1 to what that guy said" or "-1
becaues of what the other guy said", that would probably diminish the
value of the process substantially. :)

On the other hand, I personally don't see the reviews as
unsubstantial. I recall that you voted to accept Outcome v1 as an
unfinished library purely on faith in Niall:

I felt your review was legitimate. And I think that a reviewer who has
rejected Outcome v2 because they feel the opposite (to what you do,
about the author) is equally so.
