Boost defaults change (1.46.1 --> 1.48)


The latest Boost (1.48) is now in testing, and I'd like to switch the
defaults.  My first plan was to simply announce the switch then make
it.  I did so and got an immediate email from the release team
asking to revert the default change, which I did.

Now I'd like to coordinate a time for the change.  

I'd like to point out that any resulting build failures are quite easy
to fix: either
 (a) contact package upstream for boost 1.48 changes; or 
 (b) change the build-dependency from libboostfoo-dev to libboostfoo1.46-dev.

It would be quite helpful to do a rebuild of the 237 boost reverse
dependencies.  Lucas Nussbaum seems to be able to do this: can you run
a rebuild with updated boost-defaults?
