Hi all,

This is just a gentle reminder that the review for the proposed Boost.Guid
library is still ongoing. This is not a lare library, but nevertheless a
important one, IMHO.

Please try to find some time to go over the documentation or the code to
give your opinion and don't forget your vote.

Regards Hartmut

Hi all,

Identifiers. Guid's are used in many facets of programming, including
databases, networks, remote procedures, serializations, transactions,
