Hi Paul,

Yeah, those who actually had implemented tr1 math functions was saying it was
simply too hard to implement.

FWIW, I agree with that and mentioned that at the meeting.

I would be *very* interested in that since I need something to be able to move

I would of course vote strongly in favor of such a library. So please go
forward with the idea about
wrapping a implementation with a boost licence.

Once we have it in boost, I can start doing stuff in boost.stat. I hope this
can be made into a standard proposal, which might then provide additional
reason for the math functions to be in the standard.

best regards
