Hi there,

I vote for acceptance.

The design I like and fits into my world of c++ programming.

> - What is your evaluation of the implementation?

Looks good. I like the programming style. I would recommend to clean
up the files, in particular the commented out headers. Also, the
file uuid_serialize.hpp contains only commented out code besides the
macro instantiation. Is that functionality working?

How about having a uuid_all.hpp header?

> - What is your evaluation of the documentation?


> - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?

Huge. We are using UUID's a lot and this library seems to be a good
candidate for the next code refactoring.

Yes, I compiled the test program which Paul Bristow posted and it
worked without a glitch. I'm using Visual Studio 8.

A quick reading.

> - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?

I'm a user.

Thanks for another very useful lib.
