These settings are not per-project in VS, at least not typically (I'm
not sure whether per-project include paths are even possible). Neither
do they hurt, in particular not with Boost, where all headers are in a
subdirectory. On the other hand, you _have_ to add the include and
library paths, or else hard-code the full path to the Boost includes in
the include file names. Nobody does that.
