Yeah, maybe, but boost should at least _try_ to be easy to for newbies
as well as experts right? That would also help you by reducing the
number of times you have to say RTFM ;-)
I think that Tom's point was that gil is a 'generic' library and is
all-headers (it must be, it is generic), so adding a feature that would
require a _new_ depency on _another_ library, particularly one that has
to be compiled, would be a big hassle. The feature had better be REAL
important, or it should be ommitted. Expert or not, you have to agree
that adding a new build dependancy is more of a hassle than not doing
I dont think that the comment had to do with moving chunks of code from
a '.cpp' file into a '.hpp' file, I think that would be silly (except
maybe for the way Boost.Test does it optionally ...).
