Subject: Re: [boost] [Root.Ptr] Update (C consultancy -> ISO)

I am unfamiliar with all the Github features and I will ask support to
create a private branch off the public repository. Meanwhile I needed a
repository so I just made everything private.

I do understand my library needs to be perfect before it is accepted but I
need to upgrade the ISO standards before submitting it to Boost (reverse of
the usual procedure).

I do understand also Root.Ptr is not trivial so I'm better off improving it
myself than spend time explaining it. But I will explain it and answer
questions after it is well tested.

But the benefits are there, hands down. It will also jumpstart C++ when
comparing to other languages.

What I don't understand is where is the whole memory management crew gone?
Years ago there was at least 20 people fascinated about the subject. Now I
need to change oil before the engine starts.
