Subject: [boost] [filesystem] Version 3 request for comments

A prototype implementation of version 3 of Boost.Filesystem is available
for comment.

The critical feature of this prototype is the replacement of the class
basic_path template with a single class path that supports both narrow
and wide character paths. It also supports user supplied types, and
will support the new C++0x char16_t and char32_t character types as
compiler and standard library support becomes available.

There is still a lot of additional work before V3 could be added to the
trunk and eventually released. For example, work so far has concentrated
on the new functionality, and ignored breaking changes to existing code.
But enough stuff is working to make requesting comments useful.

I've got some specific issues I'd like opinions on, but would first like
to hear comments from anyone interested.
