The optional library has a number of new
failures now. I see a checkin to boost/optional/optional.hpp,
made by Fernando Cacciola:

        date: 02/03/07 02:08; author: fcacciola

        none_t/none reimplemented to avoid precompiled header issues (thanks to Joe Gottam)
        optional<T> now has direct relational operator
        optional<T>::operator-> fixed for reference types

With the following on-list commentary:

        I just commited the fix to RC_1_34_0, just right on
        time before the code freeze tonight.

I'm concerned about two things:

1. The "code freeze" mentioned above is "complete dead freeze",
and it was agreed on this list that all commits, even before
this dead freeze, would be posted to the list for approval. I wonder
if this agreement was not clearly communicated?

2. Apparently, the change broke something, including
mainstream compilers such as gcc-4.1. We're now in a
dead freeze. Fernando, what do you think we can
do at this point?
