Hi Krzysztof and Ulrich,

Your book has generated some interest in generative programming among
the members of the C++ Boost group ( One of the
current projects at boost, smart pointers, is particularly well suited
for the generative programming approach.

Looking forward to the implementation phase, there will be a need for
a set of C++ metaprogramming primitives, IF<>, etc. We'd like to
distribute a set of these primitives as part of the boost library
collection. Your metactrl header file does a good job of providing
this functionality, though there are a few changes/additions that
would be needed for boost: more online documentation, possibly some
name changes, some compiler portability work (though you've already
tackled the worst of it with VC++!), etc. So this email is to gauge
how much you would like to participate in the submission of a
meta-programming library to boost.
