Also, the final C++0x standard is due to be voted out in mid-March,
and Boost.System in effect becomes part of the standard library. While
there won't be much change in the WP between now and March, a few
details may well change. My plan is to do a pass through Boost.System
then, and bring it as close to the standard as possible, including
ifdef use of C++0x features. After that might be the best time for Ion
and other Boost developers thinking about changing code to use
