it is always a tradeoff between `code freeze' and `bug fixes' ... in the
weeks before the 1.35 release, i posted some patches for gcc-4.3
compatibility, which were rejected since the code was already frozen ...
imo, a boost 1.35.1 release, fixing bugs in 1.35.0 and with gcc-4.3
support is quite important ... if users are not able to use the latest
release, but are forced to use a specific version, they need to maintain
their own branch of boost ...
