I am wanting to know what is going to happen to the boost libraries (eg. boost.regex, boost.filesystem)
once the standard C++ implementation is released.

Are these libraries then going to be deprecated/disappear from boost thus everyone uses the
one available in the standard or will boost authors "still" keep developing and improving/enhancing the
them as part of boost (which actually IMHO will be a good thing because boosters can then retain,
introduce and enhance features that the standard might not want to accept). What do you think?

Also boost libraries that would have been accepted into the standard will vendors (eg. dinkumware)
likely to implement their own versions or use the boost implementations instead of reinventing the
