Hi Seth,

I side with Wayne and JP. We've had numerous troubles with the less
mainstream Boost libraries in the past (e.g. geometry, polygon) and in I
would rather see Kicad going fully for C++11/newer STL features only.

As for the R-Tree crash, I would simply use doubles instead of floats or
spend some time to hack the current R-tree implementation to use fixed
