I find your library very interesting and except some unavoidable preprocessor ugly (), the syntax follows quite closely the C++ proposal.

Have you considered to add block invariants? Maybe you can complete the table Contract Programming Feature Comparison.

If I have understood your library require the type is CopyConstructible to manage with postconditions. Have you considered to relax this constraint?

I have taken the freedonm to add it to the Boost Libraries Under Construction . Let me know if all the informations are right.

Good work,
