Myself and John are of remarkably similar opinion on most coding
philosophies, probably because we both think at large scale, so
prepare yourself for that Robert. I think though you'll find he won't
give any concrete opinions in writing out of habit, but he will in
person, and they are not positive about recent Boost history if I
remember correctly.

Anyway, try him for yourself at And tell him I
sent you, and that I send him my best regards.
