Subject: Re: [boost] Trac policy on "won't fix" issue

I've got a couple of those.

What I really need is an option "can't fix". Since I don't have that
I use "won't fix". About half the time, the original poster
reopens it because he thinks I should fix it anyway. At this
point I just leave it open and move on.
