Help would be most welcome!

Packaging is not the issue, however.  I think I can do that over the
weekend.  The real issue is whether it can be uploaded this close to a
freeze; for example, does it break any existing reverse dependencies?
c.f. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2008/03/msg00930.html

So, assuming I can produce the packages, what would help is to have
volunteers to test build all the things that build-depend on boost.

If interested, please email.
