I can confirm this, as I am using it myself. However, msvc-8.0 requires
inclusion of <ios> in the file
boost/io/detail/streambufs/linked_streambuf.hpp to fix an error at line 54.

I am playing around with the library. Here are a few thoughts:

[1] And is it possible to access Sink members from stream_facade, for

    stream_facade< speech_reader > speech;
    speech.set_pitch( 50 );
    speech.set_voice( "LH Michelle" );
    speech << "This is the Lernout & Hauspie Michelle voice.\n"

[2] I would like to collapse:

    std::ofstream out( "encoded.txt" );
    boost::io::filtering_ostream os;
    os.push( ascii85_encoder());
    os.push( out );
    os << ...;


    class ascii85_ofstream: public boost::io::filtering_ostream
       std::ofstream out;
          ascii85_ofstream( const char * fn ): out( fn )
             push( ascii85_encoder());
             push( out );

    ascii85_ofstream os( "encoded.txt" );
    os << ...;

but this results in a crash at the destructor (tested with msvc-8.0).

Maybe if filtering_ostream takes a bool denoting if it closes on the
destructor (default to true), so I could do:

    ascii85_ofstream::ascii85_ofstream( const char * fn ):
       filtering_ostream( false ),
       out( fn )
       push( ascii85_encoder());
       push( out );
