I agree about your inhouse repository - I have one too - but I'm not
sure I'd like to maintain a repository the size of Boost on SourceForge
just for the sake of a few tens of files worth of patches.

Consider using bcbboost! It would be a pity to scatter Boost BCB support
related efforts.

I have to say that at one time I thought we were closer to issuing a BCB
compatible Spirit 1.6.4 version, otherwise I would probably have
uploaded my own version to the bcbboost site. Still, the current
SPIRIT_1_6 branch in the Boost repository is BCB compatible.
