Subject: [boost] [format] Mistake in documentation

The current documentation (
"In the Open-group specification, referring to the same argument several
times (e.g. *"%1$d %1$d"*) has undefined behaviour."
Perhaps it was right some time ago, but it's not longer true. The
Open-group specification (
explicitly allows this:
"In format strings containing the "%*n*$" form of conversion specification,
numbered arguments in the argument list can be referenced from the format
string as many times as required."
