Remember Google don't care about Boost peer review. To them it is
unimportant. Google only fund the writing of concrete bits of code -
in fact, you will have to supply samples of what you wrote to Google
at the end of GSoC.

It's very simple: If you weren't in GSoC this summer, I'd assume
you'd spend your summer working on your TMP library anyway. So simply
list what you hope to finish this summer, and propose the first half
of that for GSoC as concrete items and the second half as optional
"would like if have time" items. Post that here when you're done.
