I mentioned elsewhere noticing the large size of boost in closures.
I've now realized what the problem was with making a lib output, and
done one, as below.  However, presumably it should have a dependency of
out on lib for compatibility, and I don't know the right way to do that.

The lib package is 17MiB, and the headers are 108MiB.
