LOL! I can't imagine anyone would proudly proclaim "my software was
rejected by boost!" If they are rejected by boost though, they have no
business showing a boost logo associated with their software (unless
they're using boost, then they could have the using boost logo).

I agree that things like using should be blue. I feel that things that
say, "I'm not a part of boost yet but I want to be", should be in red so
that people notice that this isn't boost.

I'm glad to see some good conversation here. What's the difference
between "proposed for" and "under construction for", and is it a big
enough difference to have both?
