Hi Eric. Great job, thanks for your efforts! I have a few comments on
the documentation so far.

1) The docs are very rough at the moment, in large part due to all the
macros in boost code. An attempt to force macro expansion (in Doxygen's
preprocessor) is worth a try since it may give a better and "more"
correct view of the docs. Doxygen's parser can get confused by certain
macro declarations.

2) There are some known defects in the Sunsys Dox, one of them is
filename generation. Since the current batch of docs were produced on NT
(file system non-casesensitive) the link to Namespaces->std is invalid:
[summary]-std.html is overwrititten by [summary]-STD.html; there may be

3) Judging from the produced docs the boost code seems to be largely
undocumented inline. A notable ecxeption is boost::program_options

4) Finally a warning to 56K users: broadband connection is recommended!
Perhaps it can be arranged so that a downloadable version of .zip:ed
docs if offered to those wishing to read offline.

Best regards,
