Please reconsider leaving it in the queue. I'm sure it would be possible
to find a mutually agreeable time slot for the review since I know time
is an issue here. I think your library is an important one and would
like to see it make its way into boost.

Yes time is often very hard to find :(

On the contrary I think there is quite a lot of interest. However it
requires a somewhat specialist knowledge base to fully appreciate the
issues it addresses and so many (myself included) probably did not feel
qualified to offer constructive comments during the earlier discussions.
I do recall following the discussions however as I did appreciate the
value of the library.

Thanks for taking the time to write this library in the first place. I
do hope it finds its way into a release at some point, even if not under
your care. In the least if you really can't see it through review and
know you won't have the time to maintain the library perhaps you could
find someone willing to take on that role, perhaps someone involved int
he orginal discussions surrounding it. Good luck :)
