Seems like a good start. As for compilers, I generally use VC7.1 and gcc-4.0.1
(compiled for win32). I have access to VC6 if required.

I think we should try and make it a header-only library akin to most of the
rest of boost, if we can; having to link in a separate library is a source of
pain for users, especially if it has to be linked as a separate DLL. I
appreciate that there are some areas which might require this, but if we can
avoid the requirement when these areas are not used, that would be good (don't
pay for what you don't use).
