I'm unsure I want to bring it to a review. The discussion over the summer was
very divided. I feel strongly that it's useful and I think I swayed some
doubters, but there is a hard-core group that opposes the approach. So, I
don't want to waste my time preparing something for review that is doomed. So
I might prefer to maintain it as an unofficial 'boost extension'...

It's a subset, and yes they are implemented on top of 1.34 RC. Note that some
of the functions use Boost.Regex and Boost.format as well.
