Thanks very much for emailing me about flex_string. If you could also
insert the following copyright notice, I'd be most grateful (beware of
wrapped lines):

// flex_string
// Copyright (c) 2001 by Andrei Alexandrescu
// Permission to use, copy, modify, distribute and sell this software
for any
// purpose is hereby granted without fee, provided that the above
// notice appear in all copies and that both that copyright notice

By the way, if anyone is interested in adding flex_string to boost
:o), I have recently updated the code and reached a design and
implementation I'm very happy with.
