It appears that not many do.
In short, the point is that much of the outside world thinks of Boost as a
single thing. Our perspective as library maintainers is that libraries are
independent, but that's not how others view them.
To give you a specific example, if Parameter drops C++03 support, `b2
install` will fail on all compilers where C++03 is default because Log will
fail to build. This is spelled "Boost 1.70 fails to build".
