Excellent :) My thanks to everyone on the reviews!

I'm currently going through all the suggestions, many of which I agree
with and am changing the code/docs accordingly. The suggestions I
disagree with I'll take note of for further discussion.

This week I am working on getting the file structure/namespace of GGCL
into the boost format, and also addressing many of the issues brough
up in review. Towards the end of the week I'll make a list of the
remaining work (of which there will be plenty), and any volunteers
will be welcome to knock off things on the list. Thanks Dave for

For the proposed but unreleased components that GGCL depends on, I
suggest placing them in boost/boost/pending for the time being.

As for documentation, it should be converted to HTML. I've used
latex2html before and wasn't too impressed. Does anyone know of a
better method? Perhaps I'll use latex2html as a first pass, then
do the rest of the conversion by hand.
