I like this idea, for two reasons:
1. It lets us point to a definite last version of Boost to support
C++03. Have a project that is stuck on C++03, but compiles with the
current latest version of Boost? This is the specific version of Boost
that you should use.
2. It leaves open the door for an emergency maintenance release to the
C++03 line, in case any truly terrible bugs end up in that final 1.x
