This statement can be interpreted in many ways some of which are not
fair at all to a library under review and never mentioned on the Boost
review process... for a library not to be accepted so a user's "plan"
of using Boost in some "way" will not "succeed". Which admission
criteria is this...

Can you please clarify your statement? Which "plan" is not to succeed
by preventing Boost.Local from being accepted?

I'd really appreciate you clarifying this.
