I have created a PR for the above HTML page, adding in an explanation
for the 'cxxstd' field.
So far my PR for the 'cxxstd' metadata field has seen 93 Boost libraries
adding the 'cxxstd' field to their metadata, but 38 libraries have yet
to do so. Hopefully those other 38 libraries which merge my PR so that
the end-user can clearly see what the C++ minimum compilation level is
for each Boost library.
