That is true. That is my personal recommendation.
And it is due to the fact that I do not see a good reason for Boost
needing to support old versions for a new and optional feature.

I dot not know exactly, what bugs were fixed and what new features were
introduced in CMake between 3.13 and 3.20.
I know of some, because that were problems for the project I was working
on until I was able to fix these in CMake. So for me personally, CMake
3.20 is a minimum requirement.

Then of course, some of these changes have to do with packaging / CPack
which probably is no big concern for Boost (yet).
