Stable hackage is quiet similar but has a different philosophy of solving
the dependency problems with hackage. I am not proposing to cover all the
functionalities of boost but leaning towards following a similar
philosophy. We could start with libraries covering functionality of c++ stl
(some of them are already implemented in containers) and then see where
this goes. I know it requires real hard work and dedication and thats why I
raised this as a community proposal to see if people are actually
