I am using CW6 because I don't currently own a later version. I care about
CW6 in as much as it allows me to test my libraries using CodeWarrior (I
know problems may arise on later versions).

I am assuming most people have at least CW7 with most on CW8+, like you said
in a previous post, therefore the Boost libraries will be dropping support
CW6 like they are doing for VC6 (I know it is slightly different with VC6
WRT standards conformance, but the same principle applies).

I will post the problem to the Boost mailing list. boost::reverse_iterator
is a very useful class, especially for non-conformant compilers, do I do
care about it!

I will, but I can't afford it at the moment.
