I'm talking about the documentation. For the point release, I think it's
very important that the documentation is an accurate reflection of the
code, and that some mention is made of the customization hooks
(boost_range_begin() et al.). In addition to cleaning up the concepts
specifications, the section on extending boost.range should say
something about the ADL customization points.

After the point release, I plan on taking a deeper look at the
extensibility mechanism to see if it works on the broken compilers that
boost supports. Also, I notice there is no Range test for the
boost_range_* ADL hooks. That needs to be addressed as well.
