What a pity.

Rationale is an important part of the Boost process. Supplying
rationale for changes to a library, it seems to me, is not only
reasonable but neccessary. If you ever change your mind and decide
you can tolerate a request for rationale without storming off, please
post it to this list, because I for one am certainly interested in
possible changes to filesystem.
