The dependencies to the TypeTraits extension could be added on a detail implementation, but I think that John want them to be integrated on without review :)

I don't think Ratio should be included as an implementation detail of Boost.Chrono.

And the last, if Boost.Chrono is not accepted, Boost.Stopwatches could be reimplemented using other duration types, but I don't think I will have the energy to do that.

Anyway, I expect that all TypeTraits.Ext, Ratio and Chrono will be accepted, as these libraries just implement what is already specified on the C++0x standard. So I don't expect any dependency problems.

Please be free to start a new thread to address these possible issues, if you consider it needs to be addressed in a more satisfactory way.
