I really hope this doesn't become an issue. My library is open-source,
so I strongly encourage people to recompile the library. If they have
the full, real Boost, then I would say to completely delete my
mini-Boost. It's only there so people don't have to download a 10 meg
huge library, try for an hour to figure out how to compile it then
realize they don't need to compile it (I did that!), all for a
small-time open-source lib at 300k ;).
