Forgot to mention: I don't think any kind of important code should be
depending on binaries. For this reason, I don't think that Boost should
be distributing binaries at all. To me, it's bad practice.

I realize that in some cases it's unavoidable, (libc, etc. zlib,
et.all). But still, I should be less preferred option for code which
requires any consideration of modern security problems.
