 Right, and amen. Plus, the sooner we have _something_, the sooner we
 can all start improving it. ;-)

 This is my understanding: MTL 2.whatever (the currently available
 one) has been around for a while; someone out there (Andrew
 Lumsdaine?) is going to round up a bunch of patches and update the
 current release. I _think_ that we then proceed on, over here in
 Boost, to release 3

 Jeremy Siek is(AFAIK) the MTL expert 'round these parts. Jeremy, any
 comments or clarifications?
