Personally, I'd prefer boost submissions to *not* use the boost::
namespace etc. until they're actually accepted, with the rationale
that "Boost should mean accepted by Boost". A mechanical search-and-
replace of foo:: by boost:: would then happen before merging. I
know this isn't what has typically happened in the past, but I don't
agree with your recommendation that it should be withdrawn because
of it.

Of more concern is that the unfamiliar directory structure made
it difficult for you to review it. Submissions should be either
familiar enough or sufficiently documented that reviewers can
find the important stuff that needs reviewing quickly. Hopefully
the author of this library will reply to your email with pointers
that will help other reviewers.

Cheers, Phil.
