The formal review of Paul Fultz II's Fit library ends today, 13th March.
If you had not time to do the review and you plan to do it, please let
us know so that we see if the review can be extended.

Up to now we had 3 formal review (2 for conditional acceptance and 1
against, not now).
I have not done a review myself, but I have created a lot of issues on

Best regards,

Fit is a header-only C++11/C++14 library that provides utilities for
functions and function objects.

Fit is:

- Modern: Fit takes advantages of modern C++11/C++14 features. It
support both `constexpr` initialization and `constexpr` evaluation of
functions. It takes advantage of type deduction, varidiac templates, and
perfect forwarding to provide a simple and modern interface.

- Relevant: Fit provides utilities for functions and does not try to
implement a functional language in C++. As such, Fit solves many
problems relevant to C++ programmers, including initialization of
function objects and lambdas, overloading with ordering, improved return
type deduction, and much more.

- Lightweight: Fit builds simple lightweight abstraction on top of
function objects. It does not require subscribing to an entire
framework. Just use the parts you need.

Fit is divided into three components:

* Function Adaptors and Decorators: These enhance functions with
additional capability.

* Functions: These return functions that achieve a specific purpose.

* Utilities: These are general utilities that are useful when defining
or using functions

Fit has been tested on gcc 4.6-4.9, clang 3.4-3.7, and Visual Studio 2015.
