There was a large discussion a while ago about the importance of
labelling any proposed/pending libraries for Boost properly.

There were suggestions for logos for documentation with clear watermarks
indicating acceptance status, if at all.

As for what came out of that discussion I don't know, but this shows the
importance of distinguishing between proper Boost libraries and wannabe
Boost libraries.

As for this particular library, I cannot find any record in my mailbox
of it ever being up for review, so I'd guess that it probably was not
polished enough to be submitted, or so I guess from the incomplete docs.

I would expect that you could retrieve this third party library from the
same site you retrieved this documentation.
