There's an amusing irony in that a posting with the title "Issues in
Boost Date Time Library" dated August 25th is to arrive in my mailbox

It's not the first time I have this happen on the Boost mailing list;
are some messages being held for ages by the mailing list daemon, or are
they simply marked wrongly by the originating email client?
