Modules are pretty hard for most Boost libs to adopt. Consider how
many times we have code like this:
That cannot exist inside a module. The net result is that your code
has to be all the same lexically -- for all compilers and platforms --
if it is in a module. Such macro-conditional code can be written in
headers that are #included at the top of a module, but that module
must always be built with the same definition of
Of course, we have no support for modules in Boost build either, which
is what you were asking I think. I think the motivation for all the
work that would require is somewhat low.
