We might want to keep it out of the ET thorn list, at least until its
status is clear (I mean the discussion whether to actually include it),
and maybe even until we made the change to an active download system.
However, this move makes its usage a little easier already now (thanks),
although it still has a disk foot print 133MB, compared to about 700MB
for all other ET thorn checkouts combined, and about 100MB of all other
external library thorn checkouts.

Boost is truly a huge beast. Isn't there a possibility to extract the
subset we actually need? Maybe using 'bcp' [1] ?
