Based on my experience with Beast, I now prefer developing new Boost
libraries to be smaller and more narrow in scope. FixedString is a
good example, as is Variant2 (I prefer Variant2 in its own library
instead of in say, Boost.Utility).

Those files are private so you really shouldn't be looking at them
except in the context of a Boost review :)

There is nothing novel here, this follows Asio's naming scheme (which
I copied for Beast, and also for Boost.JSON).

The CMakeLists.txt is for building a Visual Studio Project file only,
it is not supported for anything else. This should be mentioned in the as it is for Beast:
