I realize I'm jumping in on a conversation that I'm not involved in
but as mostly a user of Boost libraries, I for one would encourage you
to think about the users and their needs more than what you the
developer think is important. This is one critical piece of feedback
you're getting, and I seriously hope you consider prioritizing this in
your continued development of Boost.Fiber.
