Hi Christophe -

Thank you for submitting this library to the the incubator in
preparation for a review. I saw your presentation in 2014 and I believe
that this library solves a common problem.

My first question: I see that the library is listed as C++11 and also
has dependencies on Boost.System, Boost.Thread, Boost.Chrono, and
Boost.DateTime. Much of the functionality provided by those Boost
libraries is now part of the C++11 or C++14 standard.

Can you comment on the specific Boost dependencies and if the standard
versions would suffice?
