This patch #28690 [1] is about adding an output to boost. The aim is to
reduce the closure size.

The last message if from Dec. 2017 and indicates some issues.

1: <>


Since some work remains and it is not clear if it is worth to complete
such work about adding more outputs to boost, I plan to mark this report
as ’donewontfix’.  Let me know if it is worth to keep it open.

Any objection closing?  If not, I will close it in 2 weeks.

I'm no longer a very active contributor (or user :/), so not sure I'm the right person to judge this. Reducing boost package size is a nice thing to do, but I'm not going to do the necessary work of building all (or at least a significant subset of) boost reverse dependencies to check if the approach above works, or if more changes are necessary.

I guess someone can always pick up the patch again when they feel the need for a smaller boost package.
