Some general comments:
* I would like to make Comeau C++ boost-friendly, and would like ideas
to such an effect (notwithstanding the below, I don't have anything
specific in mind, and as such, this is just an open-ended statement).
* Thanks to feedback from Jens and Giovanni, I will be making a number
of enhancements to libcomo, and to como, and that should result in at
least another 6 or so tests passing. And will look into any remaining
issues at that point.
* Once I can bjam, and reproduce the compiler status page for como under
at least Windows and LINUX, I expect to add to como (for Windows initially)
support for a COMO_BOOST_BASE environment variable, which effectively
will add a -I positionally after libcomo includes, and anything else
necessary. That way, boost'ing with como can be automatic.
Like COMO_LIB_BASE, it won't be required. If not set, it will see
if there is a directory named 'boost' in the top level Comeau directory
tree and implicitly add it. If this works out, I will have a
similar capability worked into Comeau C++ for other platforms.
