It's only from bitter experience. My knowledge of BPL has faded
enough I can no longer reliably help people with it :(. However BPL
was how I first entered the world of Boost back 2001. If you dig
through the c++-sig mail archives, you'll find many very angry posts
by me directed against poor Dave who took it all with exceedingly
good humour. I've always held him in the highest of esteems since.
