Hi Steven, Noel, Jürgen, Vicente,

This is what I call getting good help fast! :)
Thanks to all, I just did the changes and committed. Tests ran
successfully (well, one 1 compiler...) and status/Jamfile.v2 now
contains msm, so I eagerly wait for the results ;-)

So I now go further through the check-list. From what I saw, the
inspection report now considers msm as one of the worst offenders.
Can't have that. ^^

Big big thanks to all!
