If the new version(s) are in wip as wip/boost177 and wip/boost178, but
install to the same place, then people who want to test can either pbulk
or qmake replace and then pkg_rr and test whatever they want.  I do this
with some packages that I don't feel ready to update (e.g. proj) and for
others I do this locally uncommitted (gdal, postgis) because I don't
expect others to test.
