Don't worry, there's a big Notre Dame (american) football game
tomorrow, so I'll be relaxing :)

Right, we should probably have a separate formal review for each of the
following files:

limits.hpp (well, maybe this one doesn't deserve review)
iterator_adaptors.hpp (forgot to list this one before)

I'm wondering if we should go ahead an add these into boost when GGCL
is added (since GGCL depends on them), but flag them as "tentative"
until they pass review (perhaps placing them in the detail
namespace). The dependence on these files is at the implementation
level, so any changes during review won't affect the public interface
of GGCL.
