This should be either




As a CMake developer, I prefer that people not clutter the lib/cmake
namespace either. Also, <prefix>/lib/cmake/Boost.cmake leaves no place
for the boost version. Finally, the find_package command looks in


among other places for <name>Config.cmake, and presumably BoostConfig.cmake
should sit next to Boost.cmake one day.
