But there was a recent bit of activity on the mailing list that I wanted to share with you, because it was about a constrained value library about to be submitted for review. In the boost world, new libraries are submitted for review, and the results of the review determine whether or not the library is included.

Highly fascinating stuff, if only because Fhtagn! has included pretty much the same functionality for a while now.
