I don't see any reason to rereview Joel & Jaakko's new implementation of
tuples. We don't have a policy of reviewing changes to implementations once a
library is initially accepted, and some libraries have undergone much more
drastic rewrites than what Joel & Jaakko have done with tuples. Regardless of
what we decide for "Do TR components need a formal review?", I don't believe
it should affect reimplementations and tweaks of existing Boost libraries to
match the TR interface.
