This is not a full review of the proposed Boost.Local library, I've
reviewed only Local Exits and a potential merge with Boost.ScopeExit.
I vote NOT to merge Local Exits with Boost.ScopeExit for the following
- Local Exits feature gives two different interfaces ("variadic" and
"sequencing"). In my opinion, it should only document C++0X
interface and have a section called something like "What if I don't
have a C++0X compliant compiler?" where it will explain an
alternative interface for a transitional period.
Some compilers already support enough C++0X features to let you
develop a "perfect" interface.
- Binding of variables should be modeled after lambda captures. This
means no this_ and no void. I really like void and I'd added it if
Lorenzo came up with the idea at the time when Boost.ScopeExit was
still in development.
- For the same reason, const bind& and bind& should be removed from
