I understand your concerns and I was thinking a lot how to proceed. The
complaints raised during the review have been very significant and would
have prevented acceptance into Boost. OTOH, all of these have been discussed
during the review exhaustively and AFAICS general agreement has been reached
how to resolve the issues. Andy agreed on fixing the issues as discussed
during the review in a short timeframe.
My decision whether to reject or to tentatively accept the library depends
on Andy's implementation. Since we need to have an additional mini review if
I decide to tentatively accept the library anyway, I think it does no harm
to wait for Andy before announcing the final decision.
