They will be corrected and enhanced, thanks for this. The is_multi is
meant for specialization, with help if it we can, internally, save
implementing dispatches because they would be all the same.

I just reread that paragraph and I must say, there is too much code
there, and not enough explanations indeed...

OK, right, that should indeed be there, having it in the Boost tree. We
will take this, and the warnings you reported, into account.

The review will be over then, but we like to read this! You can use this
list or the GGL list for feedback or questions.

Thanks for all your efforts,

Regards, Barend
