Hi Brad,

There is a lot to discuss here. I'll go back later and make specific comments.
  It'd be great to talk in person at boostcon, (boostcon rocks, by the way.)

I understand/agree with a lot of your points (especially bulkiness, and the need
to reduce the number of toplevel targets), in most cases because I've learned
more about cmake since I implemented what is currently on the boost trunk.

I don't personally see a formal presentation to boost-cmake devs as being
useful, there just aren't enough of us (last I checked there were three).
I'd suggest we just sit down together... there are plenty of conference rooms
available at all times. The boost-cmake-for-users talk could of course reflect
whatever we get done between now and then.
