Yes. I agree. From your pull requests I can see only the root
CMakeLists.txt for boost I guess. I would like to see examples of the
CMakeLists for a project (maybe also inluding test, documentation?)

In general, I really appreciate your effort to slowly integrate CMake
without touching Boost's build system. And I think it might be the right
way to do so. However, please note that accepting your solution (as an
intermediate step) would mean that library maintainers/contributers need to
support/maintain/debug two build system solutions. What about the
integration tests? Do we need to deploy and test twice?
