Are you making a specific proposal?

I see these options:

    1) don't do any asserts in Boost code
    2) do <assert.h> asserts in Boost code
    3) make a separate configurable assert system for use in each Boost
    4) create something like Boost.Assert

Do you have an alternative other than these 4?

I know that Peter is also determined to keep the libraries as independent as
possible because of our recent smart_ptr discussions.

One nice thing is that the proposed Boost.Assert doesn't depend on any other
Boost library (for example, Boost.Config).
