Perhaps -- it's this statement:

that makes me think that we are being dismissed. As an example, dismissing
Dave's view (which I agree with and expresses my instinct of why this 'felt
wrong' better than I could), even though he hasn't used the library is just
wrong. His knowledge of C++ is second to none and he has an extremely high
standard for correctness and consistency -- exactly what we have all come to
expect from boost libraries.

Anyway I retract the heretic part -- last thing I want is for boost to become
uncivil like the rest of the world that swirls around us daily -- apologies.
Of course, I remain unsatisfied with your answers to our concerns ;-)
