Your efforts are appreciated. I think the reason for much of the
interest is that many of us are actually using your library 'as-is'
today. For those that are, we're going to have to refactor once a new
version is available. In that regard we'll have to deal with breaking
changes anyway.

Not sure if this was mentioned or not, but do you have a public repo
with your latest code so interested early adopters can help contribute
patches against the that?

It sounds like it might be worth getting the library to a 'stable
enough' state for an addition to boost and simply make it clear in the
docs that certain interfaces might be deprecated in a later revision?
Like I said many are using it now and the wider exposure might prompt
more volunteer help.

Good luck! I had quite a few reservations during the review as I recall
but I am using your library because I do think it is a good library and
as I said all the work you've put into it is very much appreciated. I'm
looking forward to seeing some of the improvements you've made.
