BTW, have you read the committee's resolution to this
issue? It doesn't make any sense to me (Bill Wade's concern,
OTOH, seems very rasonable.)

I think Daniel is going to ask for a fasttrack review, and
Thorsten volunteered to manage it. In the meantime, I'll commit
my update and Boost.Hash code only, and wait for the outcome
of Daniel's review --it'll be his responsabiity to upload
docs, test, etc. if the lib is accepted.
