Can we upload a new Boost?

Dear Debian-Release,

We have bug fixes in Boost SVN that we'd like to upload, e.g. #461236.
However, we know that Boost is tied up in the ICU transition so we
hesitate to upload without checking first.

According to the "more excuses" page for boost [1], updating icu makes
62 depending and 112 non-depending packages uninstallable.  I reckon
that will take more than 10 days to be cleared up, so a new upload of
boost shouldn't delay things further.  Is that reasonable?  If not,
what do you suggest?
