i just did a quick compile/testsuite test for now, and i see three
trivial issues:

1. it doesn't compile with gcc-4.4, because of a missing include.
--- a/boost/uuid/seed_rng.hpp
+++ b/boost/uuid/seed_rng.hpp
@@ -26,6 +26,7 @@
 #include <memory.h>^M
 #include <ctime>^M
 #include <cstdlib>^M
+#include <cstdio>^M
 #include <boost/uuid/sha1.hpp>^M
 //#include <boost/nondet_random.hpp> //forward declare boost::random_device^M

2. the testsuite fails on x86_64 because it is using hardcoded 32-bit
hash values:
Running 1 test case...

*** 3 failures detected in test suite "Test Program"

3. the sources use cr+lf eol style, i guess correctly importing the
sources into subversion will fix this

maybe i find some time to do a full review later this week. anyway,
i have been using the library for quite some time and would like to
see it being part of boost. thus i vote for acceptance.

cheers, tim
