I've been worried about the tone this bit since I posted it yesterday. I'm
sorry, I guess I just let my frustration get the better of me. We spent so
much energy trying to get the build system documented for the last release
that the recent flood of questions just caught me off guard. So, if anyone
was offended, particularly Greg, I apologize. Of course I welcome the
interest of any compiler vendor, and Comeau in particular, in supporting
Boost well.


P.S. I still do want to know what may have gone wrong with our
documentation effort.
