 From your user perspective, how do you want this implemented? (just a

With the changes I am proposing (sorry for self promotion, see, I can:

* create a cmake build tree only for a subset of boost. Say you want to
compile only library X that depends on other libraries Y and Z, and only

* create a stub from cmake that automatically checks out the required
dependencies. This needs to be added, but should be easy to do.
