I'm very interested in this. The addition of rvalue references in C++11
makes Boost.Operators even more useful than it already is, pending it is
move-aware. I have no complaints with these points and am eager to see
progress. My only concern has already been stated -- prefer to not break
backwards compatibility, and if you do, make the transition as easy as
possible with a deprecation period. I think this goes without saying anyway,
but there's no harm in stressing it.
