Note that this problem already exists, because of Boost.Beast, which
has security implications. I have already fixed one security-related
problem. The solution here is not to avoid Boost but to make sure that
we have a workflow in place which allows Boost to be hotfixed (we have
that already). As for users being lazy, there is no solution for that
other than to remind them. Lazy users is not a problem for us to
solve, nor is it something that should guide our development path.
