Does this library use the "slots and signals" system that Qt invented and
which I suspect Gtk+ emulates?

I posit that a "quasi-standard" library, such as Boost always tries to be,
should avoid using an implementation of the Observer Design Pattern that
sucks, such as MFC's terribly heavy Message Maps.
