I am also working on a review of the library and will submit it in a

I agree.

No. I think that silence is probably better interpreted as apathy or I
don't have enough time to review something of this size and do it
justice. I would not like to see libraries adopted into boost by default
when they have not received a decent review. Just my 2p worth.
