I think this needs a clarification. The MoveEmulation library do not depends neither on Boost.Interprocess not on Boost.Intrusive. Isnt't it?

I appreciate the good work you have done. Thanks Ion.

Now that you have already tested with your InterProcess and Intrusive containers I'll adapt my own libraries to use it and see how it works.

I completly agree. What about requesting a formal review?

Thanks again,
