Since I joined his comment with a warm "yeah" I feel the need to
clarify that, to me, it didn't carry any depreciative judgement
against the committee. I'm not a native speaker and, in context, the
term looked to me as simply meaning "extremely dangerous". Only after
your reaction I have seen on the dictionary that it is a little
stronger than I imagined. Sorry for that, but really I don't have
actual spoken practice in English.

I also want to apologize with Brian, Yannis and Mat, since this is the
formal review FC++, not a comp.std.c++ thread. I had a look at the
documentation but it is really overwhelming so I should probably find
another way to have you forgive me than making a review, at least for
now :)
