My opinion is that Boost.Hash should be fasttrack reviewed (Doug went
for immediate committing, but IMHO a little review cannot hurt.)

As for BoostUnordered, I really don't think it qualifies for fasttrack
review (see the requirements at
Nonetheless, it'd probably be possible to shedule a
shorter than normal review, since as Daniel points out, the design is
pretty much out of question.
