I disagree. Rushing something into a release is a formula for mistakes.

Also, there are very likely to be other Boost libraries added or modified in
1.34 that won't make it into 1.33 that get proposed for standardization.
That isn't a good argument for hold 1.33. It is a good argument for not
waiting too long to release 1.34.

All IMO, of course.
