Subject: [boost] Are any of these bugs _really_ show stoppers?

There are 25 bugs in the Trac system which are marked as "showstopper".
Are any of these really worth holding up the release for?
(and if not, should we reclassify these bugs?)

P.S. I don't mind fixing 2512 and 2513 - and can do that for 1.43 if people don't want them in 1.42.
