 [big snip]

I can see much logic in your layout (much more perhaps than in the C language!)
but sadly, I think the balance of pros and cons is in favour of sticking to a
consistent style for a library like Boost code guidelines.

(Layout really does matter - I even find when using a colour display - I use
MSVC IDE editor or Textpad - changing the keyword colours causes my small brain
to take longer to understand the code. IMHO, the diabolical choices for
variables names is a significant factor in general users reluctance to get
'into' streambufs).


PS I am studying Daryle's most recent work on filtering streambufs, though I
find 12 thingys complex - it exceeds the number of digits on both hands :-))
