here is quick summary of issues that we have or recently had:

- compilation error in named_slot_map - fixed

- bind/mem_fn_eq test failing - I'm currently re-running test with
debug symbols turned on. This should make the test pass. However, I
still think that some documentation of the issue is needed, as
mem_fn_eq is very fragile on vc8. Actually, seeing how fragile it is,
I now agree with Peter that best way to deal with it is to add info to
XML that the test is not expected to pass, and if it does - it's just
an accident due to lack of specific optimization or presence of debug
symbols. Peter, could you pls. do that?

- boost_python_vc8.dll failing to build. This is wider issue, and
although we now know culprit (#undef _DEBUG in wrap_python.hpp),
obvious fix does not work due to linker error (python24_d.lib).
Another fix (always define _CRT_NOFORCE_MANIFEST) might have
undesirable side effects that we do not understand. I will continue
discussion in the other thread.

- "deprecated library feature" warnings - I would just document the
issue and instruct users to use appropriate set of #pragma-s before
and after including boost headers.

I think that's all. Doug, what do you think?
