Right, this is the fourth one within a year. We will send our new
preview this month or start of February. It is fairly complete now and
revised by input from the list again.

Question, related to this. Until now we didn't use the name "boost" on
it or use namespace "boost" inside, just because it is not accepted or
reviewed. We only state "proposed to boost" on the website.

I've seen several libraries, and this one as well, immediately using
the tag :boost" at first gauging of interest. What is the policy there?
Are we encouraged to do this as well or is it better to wait if / until
it is accepted?
