Well, it may be a little bit early to speak too loud about that, because
nobody has reviewed that package yet. So, there is still a chance that
fall-back on BJam be considered (it would be crazy, I believe, but we never
know). I must admit that I feared the time when I would have to build Boost
1.44 for Fedora 14, because I was not sure at all that it would work with

I can therefore state that you actually did a great job with that
boost-cmake development/maintenance... because all went very very smoothly,
without me having to perform any extra development!
Thanks a lot for that: it greatly simplified my task!

Now, I've to cross the fingers until:
* Boost 1.44 is officially released
* The Boost 1.44 package in Fedora 14 is reviewed and approved officially by
RedHat maintainers (as a lot of other packages depend on Boost, many pairs
of eyes look at it carefully)
* Begin the next cycle :)
