That's an interesting question. We definitely need to have a close look
at the Boost.GIL code structure, and do some refactoring. There are
different reasons for wanting to keep code in an extension rather than
core. Added dependencies is one reason (so Boost.GIL users not needing
those extensions don't have to install those dependencies).
On the other hand, if code ends up being itself a prerequisite for other
extensions, it might be a good indication that it should actually live
in the core. For example, some rather fundamental algorithms such as
convolution right now live in the "numeric" extension. Arguably, this
should be moved into "core".
In any case, I would suggest to start a separate discussion, and look at
