The Named Parameters Library has been accepted into Boost.
Congratulations to the authors, David Abrahams and Daniel Wallin.

The vast majority of reviews were positive, although most reviewers
requested additional documentation. Here is a list of the most
important/commonly-requested changes or additions to the library:

   - More documentation! Specifically,
     + Automatic overload generation should go into the tutorial
     + Document operator,
     + Performance data (what's the cost?)
     + Reference section
     + "Best practices" section.

   - Add a metafunction for getting the type of a parameter, e.g.,
     param_type<Params, width_t>::type.

   - Add test cases for the automatic overload generation macros.

   - Fix the BOOST_NAMED_PARAMS_MAX_ARITY bug; Cromwell Enage provided
     a solution.
