I'm so sorry, I see my false description now, when I wrote what you quote I was 
so sure
of "optional dependencies" (by definition) only including packages checked for 
by default
that I only checked the output of my last cmake run for any mention of Boost 
before writing
that and sending it off. After checking CMakeLists.txt and README.html directly 
after I saw
your reply I now understand I was mistaken.
Please let me just make a suggestion: What do you think about calling such a 
a "hidden optional dependency"?
