Sorry 'bout that - it's not my fault - though I should have replied to
the mailing list.

The idea is I definitely took your comments into account - and you'll
see that if you take a look at the latest sources.
Here's the problem (when I replied to your email):

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<jensseidel_at_[hidden]>:
    host []: 550-Postmaster verification failed while checking <john.code_at_[hidden]>
    550-Sent: RCPT TO:<postmaster_at_[hidden]>
    550-Response: 550 No such email address
    550-Several RFCs state that you are required to have a postmaster
    550-mailbox for each mail domain. This host does not accept mail
    550-from domains whose servers reject the postmaster address.

    550 Sender verify failed

Here's the original message:

Thanks ;) It's been a crazy time for me, but I'm finally coping :)

Good point . First, I need to subscribe to it :)

I've seen them now - you're right about the levels stuff - I've
corrected it in v2. I'm not maintaining v1 since v2 is sooooo much better!

Sorry 'bout that - I think I've removed them already. Anyway, could you
give me the file names, just to make sure I don't miss them in the future?

Yup, thanks - fixed it.

Thanks for the makefile - unfortunately I can't use it because boost
uses jam - so I need to somehow make a jamfile to build the tests :)
Note: the modifications are in SVN:

(I update the .zip file only once in a while - like, every 2 weeks or so
 :) )
