The changes seem to have broken a lot of other libraries tests. Failures
on VC++ 8.0, for example, went from 16 to 150+.

Math and Xpressive where hit hard. This may be tough on John and Eric

Please do whatever is necessary to resolve these problems quickly.
Otherwise it would be a lot better to develop on a branch.
