I've added a note to the master library list. I noticed that my CVS copy of
Boost doesn't have any Boost.Compose stuff in it. I have my settings to
create or destroy directories as needed. That means that all the files for
Boost.Compose have been deleted. We would have to resurrect the
BOOST_ROOT/libs/compose/index.htm file (and its parent directory) before
editing it. I'm not that good with CVS yet.

Could someone who is good with CVS resurrect the file? (Or let me know how
to do it myself.) And immediately replace it with Jon's text before
