No. We are currently trying to work out the hdf5 and ghc6 transitions
and have enormous buildd backlogs on mips*, making a binNMU campagain
for long-building packages (and let's face it, most of boost users take
more than a few seconds to build...) a problem right now.

Yes, this could complicate matters.

No, please switch to 1.42 directly.
