Well, your use-scenario is of course reasonable and it makes perfectly
sense to abort the process. But the point is that it's not up to the
library to make that decision. I hope you can confirm that it was just
the mix up of assert() and BOOST_ASSERT() that caused our disagreement.
As I said, BOOST_ASSERT is perfectly fine for me...
