nobody said it is not important, we talk here about the way to achieve
in the end the same goal. Ask Armin how often he has merged the trunk
back in his aw080 branch and continue the work on the branch until it is
ready for trunk.

The boost update as it is seems to be not ready enough and breaks other
important things, in this case debug support (which is of course
important for developers) on Windows.

Please explain where exactly your problem is to do the work on a branch.
