[sorry for intruding]

Judging from the earlier description, I'd guess Jody meant "real" proxy
objects (something marshalling function calls across process/machine
boundaries). Of course, when testing code that uses these object/interfaces,
stubs would be the thing to use (or perhaps mocks, which I'm personally not
too found of). If I'm all wrong about this, sorry.

Anyway, you caught my attention. I checked the mock_object.hpp header and
also found a couple of usage examples under the 'examples' directory. What I
was missing though, was examples of setting up / checking the expectations -
did I just miss something or aren't they there (yet)? Any chance of having
this functionality documented for 1.34?
