For reference, http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_54_0/

It's not only "algorithms and data structures" -
it also contains Filesystem, System, Interprocess etc.

Perhaps "stable hackage" goes in this direction?

Reading the Boost FAQ and History might prove useful,
( http://www.boost.org/users/proposal.pdf )
as perhaps the process could be emulated.

One way or the other - such a plan needs dedication, 
but also hard resources (time, money).

Looks like a task for http://industry.haskell.org/
but of course they decide where they put their money.
And they do, e.g., they sponsor Hackage(2)
