I know there are at least two of us actively looking into the issues
now. Unforunately I was effectively offline last week in Berlin, so am
only catching up now.

The 0x581 issues look a lot worse than 0x564 simply because many
expected failures have not been marked up yet. There are still some
library config issues to straighten out, but I think it is pretty close
otherwise. In this form, it is simply showing how scary 0x564 is
without the markup as well!

0x582 is a bit strange. Basically, Borland have made the next patch of
their compiler available to myself and Aleksey as the patch and Boost
1.34 will probably ship around the same time. Boost regressions are
one of the focusses of this patch, and it gives me much better results
locally. I have just checked out the release branch (vs. the mainline
I have been working with) and should have some more patches ready to
roll tonight.

So far, I have not been applying patches directly, but posting them to
the list. Some of those patches can take a while to be applied, and I
think a couple went missing. Is there anything I can do to speed up
applying patches?
