The fact that I had to make the solution for commercial use, and do it
quickly. I just have not had the time to start cooperating with the
authors of existing Boost libraries on the subject. And honestly, at
that moment I did not think about this scenario...

And now library is ready,and I use it for all my commercial developments
for several months. Website was created, written documentation. That is,
it's already fully prepared and independent solution...

Yes, it was. This library was created using Boost, but when I created it
I did not expectthat it may be part of Boost.

I understand your concern, Bjørn, and strictly speaking you are right...
