I don't see any gain in doing this now, while I see extra work to do now and in
the future to merge the reviewed version with the post-review version. Moreover,
adding the code to the official Boost repository would mean that some people may
start depending on the interface and their code is broken when the library code
is updated. Note that if somebody wants to try the code out anyway than it's
been available all the time at the link provided.
