GCC 4.3 should be released in a few weeks, with decent support for
those features. So, I think we can get started exercising those
features in Boost, both to help squish the bugs in GCC and to entice
other compiler vendors to start supporting these features.

Yes. ConceptGCC is buggy enough to prevent serious implementations of
Boost at this time, and I'm most interested in getting the best use
out of the C++0x features we have in released (or soon-to-be-released)
