I'm not going to write a full review of the library, I'm just trying to
satisfy the first bullet for Review manager:

In other words, there is a need to look through the sources, docs and build
system, make sure that installation notes are sufficient, tell the author
about missing/weak parts. For example: Compute library looks good, however
its docs have no performance section. This is important, because in most
cases users will use Compute library to speedup their code.

If a lot of notes appear during such "preliminary investigation", then
it's worth writing a review/comment to Boost Incubator. Compute library is
not such case.
