Thanks for the pats-on-the-back! And of course, I'm not lobbying to
change anyone's vote. There are lots of valid reasons to vote for

Also, just to clarify, none of the good stuff in Phoenix2 will be
turned down as a result of this review. Phoenix is currently
distributed with Boost.Spirit and that should definitely remain the
case. So, voting no does not mean removing Phoenix from Boost.

What's at issue is whether/how Phoenix should be distributed as a
top-level, Boost-reviewed library. IMHO, I think Phoenix should be
distributed as a major upgrade of Boost.Lambda. Voting yes, as far as
I can tell, means distributing Phoenix2 as it's own top-level library
- Boost.Phoenix - at least for some period of time, which I don't
agree with. But then perhaps there is some confusion as to what
exactly is being reviewed.
