We'll have another release in 2-4 months. I very much doubt that there
are many users who are currently using Beast with C++20. And I don't
see a huge hardship if those users need to wait a couple of months. I
just don't see that a patch is worth all the extra work, including
distribution, publicity, and confusion it might cause. Onward !!! don't
waste time looking back.

better to spend a little more time to tweak the testing/release process
so that such a thing can't recurre.
