While I do realize this is strictly about Python, I’m finding myself at odds with the idea of Boost working only with GCC.

Xcode lets you compile C/C++ programs that use Boost by using clang. It’s somewhat become the default compiler nowadays for development in both desktop & mobile.

Or am I missing something here?
