Browsing my working copy with TortoiseSVN...

The changes are BOOST-TRUNK/boost/crc.hpp at version 76335 and BOOST-TRUNK/libs/crc at version 76633.  (The latter is a directory.)  Furthermore, Boost.CRC is now using QuickBook documentation, so any Boost documentation scripts have to be changed.

Has anyone tested the changes besides me?...  (I use Apple-specific GCC 4.0.2 from Mac OS 10.4.11 [Tiger] on a PowerPC/G4 system.)  Looking at the automated tests (after finding them) on the trunk, some compilers error out on my use of BOOST_AUTO and MSVC really hates the changes.  Versions of MSVC before v11 give fatal errors.  MSVC v11 lasts long enough to give an actual error; maybe fixing that will fix it for the other versions.
