If this is something you would be able to do by the end of *next* week, I
would have no trouble formally or informally extending the review to give
you a chance to try out the library on a real project. I think such

Ack, of course. The question really is: Is
boost::local::function::overload of sufficient general interest to give it
a more natural home?

Indeed, and thanks again!
