After you run your test, it certainly would be nice if you would
place a copy of all files in the Boost eGroups vault. I expect
people will be interested in running the tests on several compilers
and/or hardware platforms.
I always wonder about older and embedded systems. Most of the people
who report timings on boost seem to have fairly fast hardware. I
wish I had hung onto an old 486 machine just to run timings.
