Thank you Hartmut for managing the review. Thank you all who participated
in the review, those who joined in the discussions, and especially those
who gave full reviews. It was a very fruitful 2 weeks. It's a good chance
to learn more about what the community wants. As Hartmut says, it's more
about the future than the past and present. Indeed, that's how I envisioned
the review. Regardless of the outcome, I was determined to improve Phoenix.
As with Spirit and Fusion, it's a work of love.

It's very encouraging to see that it has now become an official Boost
library, after many years as a sub-library under Spirit. I did believe
that it merited the Boost status. I also knew that the review will be
tough due to it's unique position in the midst of excelent libraries
like Lambda and Bind, not to mention other FP libraries like FC++ and
newer libraries, like Egg.

Now it's time to grab a beer and celebrate :-)
