  Mine is different. Boost contains many things
  that should have been in the std lib to begin
  with. I want these things to be widely used,
  so that I don't have to deal with so much bad
  code. Who should use smart pointers if not
  those who aren't avantgarde???
  (AFAIK, boost is distrubuted as part of the
  Indesign SDK. You won't reuire all Indesign
  plugin developers to be avantgarde, will you?)
