Is there a reasonable assurance that he'll get it, or is it just adding
latency to the process?

Of the twenty-two libraries listed, there are a whopping three reviews, two
of which are a review of your own library, and one of those is by you where
you recommend that we don't accept it into Boost. Not exactly good odds...

The incubator is an experiment. It may succeed, or it may fail. If
someone wishes to tie their review to it, that's fine. If they don't wish
to, that is fine too. We know that you want the incubator to succeed, but
it is unfair to expect anyone to hold up a review of their library because
of it.
