Hi, Robert. I sent a response to Steven this morning, posted here ...

How do I disable tracking? That sounds like it may be very useful. I must
do my own tracking, as described in my response to Steven, so having boost
track for me is redundant, and probably hurts performance.

By "cast away constants" do you mean, static_cast<type>(identifier) from
"const type" to "type" ?

Thanks, Robert. I appreciate any and all input.
