As a compiler-writer no-nothing, does this have any implications on the various

compile times go down, or DMD optimizations get better?
You can't change the license or copyright on the code, i.e. you can't transmit
code from DMD to LDC and change the license of it. And LDC code cannot be
transmitted to DMD and have its license changed.
So whether this is possible or not depends. If the LDC license is more
restrictive than Boost, then DMD cannot incorporate that code.
