Boris, I believe you're saying that Boost.Process 0.6 is just as
extensible as your 0.5, and that I should stop worrying about that
point. Thank you.

However there are two points that still bother me:

* Klemens says that the dynamic-container-of-initializers idea will
not work in Process 0.6. I'm not sure why. Process 0.5 initializers
also used templated executor arguments; it's true that the
any_initializer adapter had to state a specific executor type. (I had
distinct windows vs. posix any_initializer types.) Nonetheless
any_initializer could still be used with any templated initializer
type. Isn't that still true?

* Klemens states that the machinery needed to write custom
initializers is currently in the detail namespace. I want it to be
promoted out of the detail namespace: I want support for custom
initializers to be a documented, supported feature of the library. If
the library is not yet "done" in that respect, then let's consider it
again when it's more fully baked.

That's what the "IF" in my YES, IF means.
