Thank you for the support, Vicente! :-) In fact, on this list I have
specifically offered in the past to be a Review Manager for the
Boost::Local library, and now that it has made it into the queue Lorenzo
has accepted my offer.

One caveat I should mention in the interest of full disclosure is that I
am also a user of Boost::Local and have been an advocate of getting this
library included in Boost in the past so my personal feelings on the
matter are not neutral, but as a Review Manager I would of course put
these feelings aside to analyze and summarize the consensus opinion
dispassionately, even it turned out to be against accepting Boost::Local.
