The proposal that Bill Kempf pointed out
( is of special interest because it
was put together by people active on the C language committee for possible
inclusion in a future C standard.

That doesn't mean Boost shouldn't look at other proposals - even the C
committee has looked at other proposals. But in thinking about a
boostified C++ interface, it might be nice to coordinate with the C folks
to avoid gratuitous conflicts. I'll drop Marcus Kuhn an email to see if
interest exists.
