Please, please don't use Boost.  It is so huge.  We went through that before when someone
used a few Boost classes, and it slowed everyone down doing gets from source control,
etc.  I must admit it has some cool stuff.

I'm not worried about using Boost features in MySQL++.  I'm worried about telling every
single MySQL++ user on the planet that they have to install and set up Boost before
MySQL++ will work.  I'm worried about 90% of problem reports to this list being Boost
misconfiguration problems.
