As incredibly tempting as it sounds (really, it does!), I'm afraid I
won't be able to truly provide support and maintenance for the library.
I'll probably use this mandate to get several things I want to change,
but then I won't have enough time to properly test it, document it and
port it to all platforms. At the end of the day, if I'm not fully
committed to invest the time needed, which I'm afraid I'm not, I'll do
more harm than good. Of course I'm not against having write access to
the Boost CVS, but it's unlikely I'll use it for the above mentioned

But thanks a lot for the offer!
