I wrote the code for the boost submission 8-9 months ago, in
accordance with the then-current C++0x proposal (with a few extras)
and it has been in the review queue since. I have since focused my
energy on my commercial library, rather than on a library which may or
may not be accepted into Boost, with or without changes (especially
since there is a competing submission).

If a futures library is accepted into Boost, I will gladly work with
Braddock to update the library with any features required by the
review, including conformance to N2627.
