Subject: Re: [boost] [safe_numerics] questioning the basic idea

The original comment is couched in terms of acceptance as a boost library.
I'm really pushing for this as a boost library - though if someone wanted it
as such I wouldn't object. Right now, my major usage for it is as sample
library for the incubator.

I think this comment and replies are constitute a very useful and
interesting discussion. They touch on fundamental issues that would be
useful to users should the decide to use or not use such a component. So I
would like to see these preserved as a permanent part of the Safe Numerics
web page in the library. Also, I want to run a test of the comment
mechanism with a real discussion to see how it has to be adjusted to be
useful in the real (boost) world. So could I ask you all to post your
comments at .
This would be very helpful to me on a number of levels.

This means that Andrzej should post a comment and the rest of you should
reply to this comment.

I realize that is is sort of pain, but, again, I would be very helpful to me
to test the idea of building and maintaining a libraries comment history in
an permanent convenient place.
