Ah! Sorry, I missed that.

Is there a reason for having the "inlined" subdirectory within
boost/system/detail? Couldn't the two files just live in

Could namespace boost::system::system_detail be renamed
boost::system::detail? Just to keep the names a bit shorter.

If you would prepare a patch against the current trunk, and send it to
me, I'll apply it locally, and do some testing.

Also, we need to document BOOST_USE_WINDOWS_H, if I understand Anthony
correctly. Let's not forget that.

Yes, that's a necessity.

We have enough time to get Boost.System inlining done for 1.46 if we
get going on it right away.
