That's a very candid assessment which I hear loud and clear, and does a
very good job of summarizing the overwhelming impression. But I do think
that this proposal fits with the mandate of Boost to seek code reuse,
modularity, and convergence towards the C++0x standard. I have given
specific arguments to that effect in previous comments. The question is,
I think, whether there is sufficient ground for bringing this design and
its documentation to meet the demand for greater simplicity? Thanks.

PS: The example was not meant as the analogue of hello world. On the
contrary, but it seems that is has baffled reviewers more than it has
impressed them ;-)
