No worries, I clearly had too much time on my hands ;)

Fair enough.

General Boost comment not specific to this library: This is really a
side-effect of how we manage our branches and releases. With the move to
SVN I'd imagine this sort of thing will get easier. I'd fully expect
that acceptance of a boost library really should mean it goes into TRUNK
(from now on). Whether or not that library makes it from TRUNK onto a
release branch really is a separate question. That way we can build and
view tests for the library which can only help its development towards a
releasable state.

I look forward to that thanks :)
