Yes, I forgot the details at the time, but this reminds me that generic lambdas were exactly the problem.

Yes, that is correct. I personally, don’t use b2 for building anything except boost itself. It seems too far afield from “normal” build environments to be useful in my own work. I was not really pointing this out as a problem with the library, but rather that I thought there was some mention of it being a c++11 library and then I found I need to use c++14 at some points. I suppose that is entirely due to the example code, though, and not the library itself. Perhaps a mention of the need for c++14 in some examples?

None of this is a big deal, though. The bottom line is it seems to be a great piece of work.
