I'm quite keen to recompile my production systems against the latest
asio/beast changes in boost 1.70 as they are extremely pertinent to my
domain. If there is any way of getting a patch release out into the wild as
a complete tar.gz that would be helpful as it would mean I don't have to
redefine my build environment in terms of git submodules.

Just want to add my vote of thanks to Vinnie and Damien (not to mention
