Very good. Hartmut's work is high quality.

I haven't read it in detail, but after skimming it, it seems complete
and accurate.

While most developers may not find it useful, it could be indispensable
for others, and will hopefully serve as a building block for more
powerful c++ tools.

I have been following the development of Wave ever since Hartmut started
it. I paid more attention when he first started, but have been keeping
an eye on it in the past few years.

To an extent. I know Spirit fairly well, and I originally wrote the c++
lexers Wave uses. Obviously Hartmut has improved them, and Wave
actually drove some of the features of SLex.
