Hi Jonathan, some quick observations:

* Some of your includes still refer to <boost/io/...> instead of
<boost/iostreams/...> (most notably, the examples). Am I missing

* In boost/iostreams/detail/buffer.hpp, you can take advantage
of boost/detail/allocator_utilities.hpp to do your allocator rebinding
for both compliant and defective compilers. So, instead of

    typedef typename Alloc::template rebind<Ch>::other allocator_type;
    typedef mpl::if_<
                is_same<typename Alloc::value_type, Ch>,
>::type allocator_type;

you can write:

#include <boost/detail/allocator_utilities.hpp>


  typedef typename
    boost::detail::allocator::rebind_to<Alloc,Ch>::type allocator_type;


* Seems to me that with some moderate effort the library could
be made to work more or less with MSVC++ 6.0. If you want me
to try to help a little wrt to this, please tell me so and I'll send you more
questions/stuff via private email.
