I'm also still working on finishing the Spirit docs. It's mostly ok now.
But I wish to spend a few more hours on it after I get over this flu.

I think we should start to discuss the possibility of having individual
releases (as Spirit is doing right now) instead of one monolithic release.
I'm sure you are all starting to feel the weight. At some point, when boost
assimilates more libraries, a monolithic release might take forever. This
seems to go against the open source mantra "release early, release often".
There will be issues, of course. Spirit is experiencing some of them now.
For instance, which version of Spirit works with which version of Boost
is a common question. Thoughts?
