Yeah, I also tried to have a look, but C++ and Boost are too unfamiliar

My e-mails for some reason don't make it to the mailing list. I am
registered on the list as I'm receiving all the traffic, and I'm using
the same From: address as the one used for my mailing list
subscription. My previous e-mail to the list (about SSP on x86) also
didn't make it to the list.
