I was not following the template geometry thread, so please forgive me
if I'm missing the point ...

It seems to me that you will get a much closer inspection of your work
if you are willing to open-source it now; it takes a lot of effort to
review a submission to boost (or a submission preview), and personally I
would not want to spend the energy if I thought the author was
considering keeping the code proprietary.
