I wouldn't assume that no comment means everything is ok. Despite the
fact that I think boost is very valuable, and I still monitor the
discussions and even participate sometimes, I've long since given up
trying to maintain a current snapshot of all the boost libs. I just
spent 15 minutes looking for a function.hpp with a date of May 9. I'm
sure someone more talented could have found it in that time, but I
couldn't. Nor can I afford the time to become more familiar with
everything boost.

Daryle if you would like to stuff up a complete test (I have zero
current boost on my system) and mail it to me, I'll try it out on the
latest CW compiler and report back here.

Of course if someone else pipes up with a report from CW Pro 6, before
then, that works for me too.
