Alternatively, you could use nested namespaces within the library
namespace to indicate the origin/purpose of the various components.
Simple wrappers on Python concepts could be in boost::cleese::python,
so you could write

     namespace python = boost::cleese::python;
     python::tuple t(x, y, z);

Yes, perhaps I should claim F for the BFL - Boost Functional Library. ;-)
And BTW, what is the 27th letter?
