I think it would be useful to provide details of this to say one of the
Borland public newsgroups. (borland.public.cpp.language maybe)

I am a bit concerned it might lead to newbie questions etc. but hopefully if
Jens (or Boost, if they decide to host this.) can make it crystal-clear and
provide no contact details etc. it might be OK....

I also rely on a lot of John Maddock's posts on MSVC and other compilers and
I'm sure there's a valuable resource here,too.

Like I say I think the information would be extremely useful for potential
boost submissions particularly if the workarounds or list discussions are
referenced for anyone wishing to follow up.

I probably think it might 'dilute' boost to have this too prominently
featured at the site although I certainly see a case for this complementing
any discussions about config.hpp.

Great work everyone.

I'm really looking forward to the inclusion of some of the 'vault' work into
the mainstream boost library.

I was a bit concerned that some of the excellent submissions might remain in
the vault rather than reaching a wider audience via the main boost page.
