Sure, note, however, that, strictly speaking, here we are not talking about bugs, we are talking about work in progress. In general, when the relevant documents are clear enough we don't debate much the implementation, in the mailing lists, unless someone posts a patch, of course ;) Of course, I don't want to turn down your help, sorry if that was not clear in my previous messages, but really, when we are talking about new, experimental, features, we are really looking for implementors, at this point: imagine what would happen if each user of the experimental C++0x switch (both the C++ front-end and the library bits) starts posting about his favored missing / incomplete item vs the current draft, that would be completely unmanageable!
