Hi Dmitriy,
I commited code and tests on the last day for new libraries (Dec 20th) but the
commit didn't appear in the repository. I didn't realise that my commit
required prior approvals (I later re-read the guide and found this requirement)
so it could be rejected by svn admin. I wrote to Beman few days later but got
no reply.

As we're getting closer to C++0x with lambdas, scope_exit becomes less
attractive because one can write something like:

using boost::multi_index::detail;
scope_guard g = make_guard( [&a, b]() -> void { /* … */ } );
