Well it certainly seems to be in there. Including the whole of boost!

Am I right in thinking you only use boost to provide the regex library,
as a substitute for unix regex?

Maybe you've already discussed this with Ben, but I feel that including
the whole of boost inside box is not the right thing to be doing here.
It's too large a dependency to be incorporated and it's got a very
stable interface too, so there's not really any need.

Really it ought to be an external requirement, and then only on
platforms that need it.

Not that I'm arguing against the use of boost, it's a good library and I
encourage people to use it. Just don't think we should be incorporating
it in the sources.
