This is a very interesting thread, but I just don't have enough experience
with pull requests to form an opinion yet. Worse yet, many other Boost
contributors don't have pull request experience either.
I'm starting to get pull request for libraries I maintain, and will process
them ASAP to develop experience. It looks like other libraries are also
starting to get pull requests.
The opinions of people who are relatively new to this list are also
important, but since this question doesn't seem to require immediate action
I think it is just going to have to bake a awhile longer.
