I recommend that the review manager accept this library into boost
without conditions.

Much better than average. Basically quite usable.
The Getting Started was very helpful to me.

It took me a while to see this, but I realize that I could see this
right now.

I didn't try it

Two hours of poking through the documentation in the context of some
current issues I'm dealing with.

Compared to whom? Actually I don't consider myself particularly
knowledgeable. I did spend a fair amount of time looking at
boost.functional, boost.call_traits and cpp_reference functional, and
some C++17 constructs like is_invocable, etc. After I did all that the
purpose, utility and usage seemed pretty straight forward.

I didn't do a review in March 2016.
