I have few outstanding issues to fix, but they are mostly related to
the documentation. I think, I can manage it.

As it seems, that the Range library will not make it to this release,
I will use the internal versions of facilities that are currently in the string_algo lib.

So my todo list is as follows:

1) Finish the documentation
  - Add functions list
  - Add exception specifications
  - Cleanup

2) Fix examples
3) If there will be time, improve find_iterator
4) Fix possible regressions.

 - I have posted some requestes/bugs on the boost-doc list. What is the status
  of this. Will they be fixed before release?

 - According to metacom's tables regex is failing on comeau a so string_algo regex
   test. Is this a setup or regex problem?

 - There is an problem with Intel compiler, split tests are failing and I cannot figureout
   why. The message is very vague. Could somebody with an access to this platform,
   try to debug the cause of the problem?

 - In regards to the older compiler support. I cannot resonably support compilers, that I
   don't have an access to. Therefor if somebody is interested to use string_algo library
   with one of such compilers, I will need an active help with porting.
