I wouldn't call it "mere vapor". Rather, I'd call it "a challenge to port".
So far, gcc 3.3 is the only compiler that passes all the tests. If I could
get it compile on at least two other compilers, I would submit it for
review. But it doesn't seem that a library that only works on one
compiler meets the usual goals of Boost. Feel free to correct me if
I'm wrong. Of course, I don't have that many compilers to try, either.
Maybe if I had access to some better compilers, I would get farther.
