Hi All,

The review of Vicente Botet Escriba's Conversion library starts today and ends August 29.

The Conversion library manages generic explicit conversion between unrelated types. It can be thought of as a substitute for overloading static_cast, or as an alternative to lexical_cast when conversion via text is unwanted.

The code is available here:

And the documentation is here:

Alternately, you can download a compressed package here:

Reviews may answer the following questions:

 * What is your evaluation of the design?
 * What is your evaluation of the implementation?
 * What is your evaluation of the documentation?
 * What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
 * Did you try to use the library? With what compiler? Did you have any problems?
 * How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick reading? In-depth study?
 * Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?

And finally, every review should answer this question:

 * Do you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library? Be sure to say this explicitly so that your other comments don't obscure your overall opinion.

Of course, "informal reviews" and discussion are also welcome.
