Boost Announcement :

Unfortunately I must say that the pimpl_ptr library will not be part of
Boost at this time. The results where decidedly against the library in
the proposed form. A few points about the library where clear:
* Many want to see a pimpl_ptr in Boost.
* The proposed design was considered to not do enough towards addressing
the handle-body idiom within C++.
* Some of the ideas, the policies, where both liked and disliked. Which
raised the specter of the lack of a policy pointer.
Hopefully we will see this idiom addressed in some near future.
Last, I must apologize for the late results. But I must thank Ronald for
the gentle prodding :-)
