Thank you for the encouragement. I also feel that Boost needs such a
library. I haven't made a final decision on XInt's fate as yet, we'll
see once my current project is on its feet and I have a large block of
time to devote to it again. If all goes well, that will be late this
summer or soon thereafter.

I found it encouraging that some of the people I've come to admire on
this list saw the potential in it, regardless of their vote.
