As much as I'm a quickbook fan, we can't expect library developers to use it.
Also, I wouldn't want to discourage authors from using the Boost directory
structure or practices during the dev phase as I think someone suggested
earlier in this thread. Using boost practices makes it easier for all of us
to evaluate, develop, etc. So I'm with Dave on this -- a simple 'candidate'
(or similar designation) in emails works.
