I still haven't seen a concrete proposal as to exactly what a fix would be.
If it is something that has no effect on users of other platforms, that's
one thing. Boost has lots of workarounds for platform specific deficiencies
that only kick in on those platforms.
But if a "fix" is something that impacts all boost users and developers on
all platforms, my level of concern goes way up.
So a specific proposal for a fix would be appreciated.
