Well, let us iterate the libraries which were presented this C++ Now
conference which are not in Boost and have no (to my knowledge)
intention to enter Boost. Some of these may not be C++11, it was hard
to tell from the talk description, but a majority were:

* Versor
* Turtle Mock
* BoundedInteger
* Mach7
* Octopus
* Metashell (or rather its underlying libraries)
* libcppa (though Boost.Actor which is based on this is expected)
* CppComponents
* Some sort of C++ idiomatic XML library
* Doppl
* sfrp

Need I say any more?
