At this point I have no idea what it might take for a CMake fulfill such
a requirement. But of course that's not relevant at this point.

So this would be another suggested requirement:

"Build and Test should be able to adjust target requirements according
to the test results of boost/config - similar to how boost build does

Again, This is noted. I'll take it under advismment when I craft the
first cut of the "scope and requirements" proposal.
