Okay. Now, how does the boost team feel about this?

Hehe.. sure. That's the thing I hoped to exist, already.

What's the point in having unreleased, and possible not-working
versions in git? (I assume the merge conflicts are against Debian
patches, right?)

Again: I'm not eager to package and test versions older than 1.4.8.
And yes, I tried with 1.4.1. IMO we should just go forward and forget
about older versions. We can still get 1.4.8 to wheezy as a backport,
later on.

If you want to give it a try, I can send you my changes to 1.4.1.
