Thanks Dave. I have to admit we (myself, Rich Lee, and Lumsdaine) have
been somewhat over-extended putting GGCL together and doing the
documentation. One thing I'm hoping that will come from GGCL becoming
part of boost is that others will begin extending it to include things
like planar graphs. In any event, all of your comments will be very
helpful to me in improving the documentation/presentation.

Perhaps another thing I should mention. we've got a contract with
Addison-Wesley to turn the user-manual into a book. Of course the
acknowledgments will include a long section dedicated to boost
