It's possible some of the toolchain maintainers will disagree with this,
but at this point I would suggest that any new packages should be built
for g++ 3.2 *only*.  Building new libraries for g++ 2.9x now will just 
add to the volume of packages that need to be transitioned.

If these BOOST C++ libs are already in the archive, then you should
probably continue using the default toolchain for the time being, unless
you're planning on spearheading the transition plan. :)
