I'd really like to see something like that.

I think it would also help if Boost moderators (and maybe those with
accepted libraries) could nominate or comment on libraries, separately
from those comments from the general public. A simple note like "this
is an important problem space where we need a good solution," or "code
quality seems excellent; the documentation needs work before review"
from someone perceived to have influence in the review process might
serve as useful encouragement.
