The boost version used in Debian old stable is 1.62.  I think 1.59 is a
pretty safe bet at this point for the development version.  For the 5.1
branch, we should keep the current version unless we are planning to
back port any of the testing features which were the primary reason for
the version bump request.  I will make the change as soon as I get a
chance, we can always revert it if it causes too much grief.
