Hi Michael,

Thank you for the review.

I'll add that.

Sure, they won't remain BOOST_STRING, BOOST_DEFINE_ERROR, etc).

I'll add a metaparse.hpp that includes everything. I think that is the
most straight forward thing to do here.

The first time it appears in the tutorial, it might be explained. I find
the "...>" prompt making it clear what the user is supposed to type and
what the response is (or is expected to be). With the links to the
copy-paste friendly version of the code examples, they should be fine.

Is there a way of telling the Jamfiles to use c++11/c++14 if supported?
