That's the impression I got from this thread. Correct me if I'm wrong.

That's a good idea if someone is willing to do it and it looks like
getting good results. Otherwise it's worthless.
If you consider Boost.Move, it's author is a major boost contributor
and it's still taking it's time. Meanwhile, several libraries are
using their own move emulation, which isn't ideal but it works fine.
Is it really a good idea to delay a library that's apparently ready
until three other libraries are fully reviewed and in trunk? That's
just making a slow process slower.
