Subject: [boost] [local] Any "active Boost library author" in favor of Boost.Local?

Hello all,

I will be honest: The fact that some of the people arguing for not
including Boost.Local are "active Boost library authors" (Thomas,
Joel, and Hartmut) seems to make their opinion weight more than the
opinion of others that have also submitted a review for the library.

Two questions:

1) Should reviews from "active Boost library authors" carry more
weight? (This is /not/ a rhetoric question.)

2) Is there any "active Boost library author" out there that is in
favor of including Boost.Local? (If so, please say so by replying to
this thread.)

Thanks a lot :)
