Boost :

Here's the vote from the at-large membership:

                          Never: -1 -1 -1 0 0 0 -1 -1 1 = -4
   Always Except Before Library: +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 0 0 0 = +6
                         Always: 0 0 0 -1 -1 -1 +1 +1 0 = -1

Even adding the votes from moderators and authors, this picture only
changes slightly:

                          Never: -2
   Always Except Before Library: +7
                         Always: 0

I asked Jonathan Turkanis if he wanted to make a numeric vote, but now
it's clear to me that it can't change anything significantly. This
vote confirms my original suggestion:

   - Librfary names will be set in roman type

   - The library name will be capitalized

   - The period will only be used when the library name is not
     followed by the word "library". For example:

        The great thing about Boost.Bind is that you can use it with
        member functions and function objects.

        The Boost Bind library was written by Peter Dimov.

   - The word "library" is not part of the library name and is
     therefore lowercased.

If anyone can suggest a good place (somewhere in probably) to put this
information, I'd be indebted.
