Toshio, I totally understand your points. We are well aware of all of
disadvantages of bundling/forking that you mentioned, but given our
circumstances we decided that bundling/forking Boost is the best solution,
despite all the aforementioned disadvantages. We made this decision a year ago,
and to date we still think that it's the right decision.
Note that what we're saying is that forking (and forming another upstream)
actually is better then bundling (whether forked or not).
Also, we'd like to see an effort made to have the changes applied to boost be
sent and accepted upstream even though that would include more work (*NIX ->
win32 compat). Upstream would then at least stand a chance in whether they want
to make stuff win32 compat. or whether to ignore/reject the patch at all. If
you decide to do so, please keep me in the loop.
