According to Matthias's list, boost is one of the packages affected by the
ABI breakage.  The current version of boost can't enter testing yet because
it blocks on the current, RC-buggy version of gcc-4.0.  The next version of
gcc-4.0 will implement the ABI change.  So I think the only option now is to
go for 1.33.1 in testing.
