After finishing the revisions to the Boost WWW-site to address the
autotools adjunct build-environment as I promised, I am focusing on
multithread/concurrency topics for the foreseeable future. I am
putting the finishing touches on the WWW-site update.

subsequent postings on this thread continue, then a Boost developer
newsgroup will meet my needs of controlling an otherwise overwhelming
amount of email.
