That's true.

Yes, the library is hosted at SourceForge, there is SVN repo with the
latest source code. Trunk is v2 work in progress.

Well, it's 'stable enough' all the time, trunk included. The library
should compile and work as intended at all times, and to my knowledge
quite a few users use trunk version (primarily because it's compatible
with the latest Boost releases). It's just that they agree that the
interface may (and will likely) change. This kind of agreement is ok for
a pre-release stage but is it ok for a part of Boost release?

One thing I had in mind was to merge to Boost trunk (but not release)
but that seems to contradict the common protocol for library acceptance
(which I'm fine with).
