This was not the last message. I see one from 06/Jan/2011 on which you say
"Vicente Botet's header-only option for Boost.System is mostly working,
and will be ready to commit to trunk soon."

I don't remember exactly why we didn't do the commit, I need to check the
private mails I exchanged with you.

Anyway, the last state I know of is on the sandbox


I guess that I run the regression test on Boost.System. Maybe the test
should be extended to other libraries using Boost.System.
