No worries :-)

The intention (at least on my part) is to merge the implementations so that
we don't end up with two different versions(!), and so that we get the best
of both worlds: the genericity of the current Boost.Math version (works to a
degree with numbers represented as class types), and the performance of
Johan's version for the builtin floating point types.

How the library and documentation should be structured is a whole other
issue - thanks for raising this - I think you're correct that these
utilities should be easy to find and at the very least flagged up on the
library index page.

I'm open to suggestions as to whether that means separate documentation and
organisation, or just a separate index entry leading to the sub-TOC for
fpclassify etc. There are pro's and cons either way, so I'm easy I guess.
