Aside: I don't believe that Boost is "non-platform-neutral."

I believe that most of Boost *is* platform-neutral --- although it tends to
make heavy use of modern C++ features, and thus can have problems with specific
platforms that don't implement specific features (or don't implement them

In any case, you are right that dependencies make the world harder, so it is
worth considering the trade-offs involved.
