Several people have explicitly mentioned that they have reservations about
the fact that the library was not presented in its final Boost-ready form
and that they would have liked to examine, and vote on, that final form.

Abel has accommodated their wishes and has done the necessary work to
present the library in its Boost-ready form. It strikes me as extremely
unfair to hold that against him. Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.
