I wouldn't count on it.  Boost.Python is being updated concurrently
with other parts of Boost, and I do plan to use new features of other
library components.  I'm afraid I can't easily give you a limited
summary of all the other directories that Boost.Python might need, but
I can say that a recursive update in boost/boost and boost/libs/python
is likely to be enough.

Using the -z9 option to enable full compression during CVS operations
could also have a significant positive impact.
