Thank you very much, Steven.

I have revamped and simplified the macro interfaces and am working on
updating the documentation. I am not sure I will be finished in time for
Boost 1.58 but I will definitely have the library ready for Boost 1.59.
Once I am finished with my updated documentation and am satisfied I have
met my goals in making the library easier to use I will post a message
on these forums and whoever is interested in the library and its
functionality can take a look at the updated functionality and make
whatever comments they like. I do not know if the improved and added
functionality will need any further mini-review but I will let others
decide on that once I am finished.
