In case these statements are percolating in the back of your mind, I'd
like to de-emphasize #2. Removing the Boost version is useful if you
want to have a single version at a time on the system. But I'm coming
around to the idea that multiple Boost development environments is a
useful thing. In that scenario, the current practice of versioning
the link names and the includes directory is exactly right.

On that note, I see that 1.34.1 installs includes into
boost-1_34_1/boost, while 1.35.0 installs into boost-1_35/boost.
Will 1.35.1 still use 1_35 or will it use 1_35_1?
