To merge from the most recent release branch, we use svnmerge.py:
Since the release branch is itself a branch of the trunk, you'll need
to use the -S argument to merge in the changes from branches/release.
Once the merge is done and the result is working, commit it back and
we'll be up-to-date.
One question I don't yet know how to answer is whether we need to go
through a "modularize" every library on our branch---or even how to do
so---for proper, modular installation of Boost. We may need to
incrementally build a script that can take a Boost tree and do the
renames/moves needed to modularize that tree.
