Your memory is right on. I have a Power PC G4 based mac mini, which I
tested on up to the point we switched to Git, which isn't available for OS
X 10.4. Also, the compiler was GCC 4.0, so not a good reflection of modern
Lars Viklund proved the value of the Boost community once more by testing
right away on three different BE platforms including a very current GCC
version! That's far better test coverage than I could have achieved alone.
