Eh, maybe. I was more thinking there might be some process control in
there somewhere, and that might overlap with Boost.Process. I really
didn't look for more than 90 seconds.

If a review manager can be found, anything can be reviewed. It
doesn't mean the review will work though. I think the worst outcome
in a community review though is when almost nobody contributes a
review because it's too hard and/or no one cares enough, with the
second worst outcome being when each reviewer has a totally different
understanding to any other as to what they are reviewing, which makes
the job of a review manager almost impossible.

In that sense, small, single purpose libraries have a lot going for
them under how Boost currently has configured peer review.
