well, it would be great if the review would actually happen within a time frame
of 3 months. unfortunately, it is a bit different in reality: the boost.lockfree
library is on the review queue for more than a year. with 6 reviews per year
(like in 2010) and 15 libraries earlier in the queue, i don't expect a review to
happen before 2013. in a way, this is kind of nice since the dependency to
boost.atomic (c++0x-atomics for c++-98) will hopefully be obsolete since
compilers may already be reasonably c++0x-compliant.

so a time frame of 3 months is probably more a time frame of 3 years :/
