Using undefined terms always leads to confusion. ;-)

For me, "LWG ready" doesn't mean that it can become part of the standard. A
library is "LWG ready" from Boost point of view if you can answer with a
(possibly qualified) "yes" to the question "if this library becomes part of
the standard library, would it fit in?"
