This is exactly what would happen - they would remain internal

In fact, they are already internal libraries:

- Monad lives in boost/afio/monad.

- APIBind lives in boost/afio/bindlib.

You as the external user need not concern yourself with how the
public API is implemented.

I merely stated I personally would not be comfortable sending AFIO
into the main Boost distro until you guys had reviewed Monad. It's
not a prerequisite nor precondition.

You can accept or reject AFIO without needing to accept or reject any
internal library.
