Do you (or does someone else) know where to see the current
status/issues with unique_resource? The closest I could find was
p1411r0[1], but perhaps I'm missing something.

I have a slightly-modified implementation of unique_resource that I've
used to great effect and I wouldn't mind trying to get this across the
finish line, provided I know all what's holding it up.
