I've considered it - though not in as much detail as you have. And I
the motivation but this would require a lot of work. Making it work smoothly
with the current native comment system would be a lot of work and probably
maintenance. So that wouldn't be in the cards for some time - if ever.
The current comment system is (I believe) well suited to those C++
which do not use the boost dev list.
actually, another option would be a button which says "show comments on this
library from the boost developer's list". A hack, but more doable.
again, I'm hoping that the incubator evolves into the go to place for
on prospective libraries. This would save the comments in a good place and
"de-clutter" the boost developer's list a little bit.
