Is perfect with me at least :) I guess the review wizard
should allocate a period for fasttrack reviewing Boost.Hash
(which, if I understand it OK, can run in paralel with other
regular reviews.) Tom?

As for my negative vote to accepting Boost.Unordered for
fasttrack, my main concern is that other authors are patiently
standing in line for their own reviews, and the size and scope
of this library does not justify for a fasttrack treatment, in
my humble opinion. Other than that I think the lib is needed
and will eventually make it into Boost.
