Boost :

I've been watching the py_cpp messages go past, and while I don't want to
sound like I'm being negative for the sake of this, I wonder if this is
really appropriate for Boost? Personally, I don't use Python much (and I
don't write extensions at all) so I can't comment on the value of py_cpp per
se (although from the comments I've seen, I'd certainly look at it if I were
writing extensions for Python). But boost is intended as a general C++
library, AIUI. I don't see that py_cpp fits that remit.

So while I'm quite happy for py_cpp to continue being developed, and I have
no problem with the discussions being on the Boost list, I'd say that in the
end, it should not be incorporated into Boost.

Comments? I'm surprised that no-one else has said this - am I missing
something fundamental from not having actually looked at py_cpp?
