So if AFIO is accepted, but "Monad" and "BindLib" are not, does that mean:
a) They instead become an internal detail of libs/afio?
    (i.e. not libs/monad but libs/afio/monad)
b) You wouldn't want AFIO to become part of Boost?

I mean, reviewers might have a different opinion if accepting AFIO
requires those two libraries must also become part of Boost.
