You could also become a maintainer for Boost.DisjointSets without merging
it with another package. I don't mind the merge, I am just saying the two
need not be linked.
The headers might be in boost/pending, but there are many external users.
Please try not to break them gratuitously. If you move the header to a
different subdirectory, please put in the old position a dummy header that
includes the new one, etc.
