You might want to relax over the weekend; the formal review period doesn't
end until Sunday, IIRC:-) Give the Review Manager (Dave) a chance to
comment on issues raised during the review.

There are just too many files. I strongly vote for putting them in

Hum... Some of these are of general interest (meta.hpp, etc.) or are
special in some other way (limits.hpp).

We need to talk more about headers with lots of potential use outside the
context of ggcl. Such headers should live in boost, rather than
boost/graphs. They should be documented separately, too. For generally
useful components, I'd like the docs in HTML. They should really have one
or more separate formal reviews, too. Ideas?
