That's not what the proposed minimal support is about (IIUC). The goal here
is for people to be able to use a local installation of Boost (as cloned
from Github, perhaps as a submodule) from their CMake projects by including
the top-level CMakeLists.txt and then linking to the appropriate imported

Tests, docs, are not in scope. Neither is building multiple variants,
staging, or installation.
